Presentation: Julian Kilker, Susie Skarl, and Yvonne Houy

Julian Kilker (Journalism and Media Studies), Susie Skarl (Libraries), and Yvonne Houy (Fine Arts) co-presented a panel session at the 2021 CCC Techconnect Online Teaching Conference. The panel, "Structuring Engagement: Using Google Apps to Organize Interactive Assignments," introduced collaborative teaching innovations developed at UNLV to a large audience. Topics included designing courses using tools and strategies to support scaffolding, collaboration, and evaluation beyond what current resources such as Canvas normally provide. Kilker, an Office of Online Education Research Fellow, and Skarl discussed their collaboration on course and library resource design for Honors and journalism and media studies courses, while Houy discussed the integration of technology and pedagogical frameworks in these innovations.
