It has been my pleasure to provide a wide variety of professional development experiences. My presentations focus on applying learning into the classroom. I’ve presented on Student Centered Learning strategies and many uses of technology. I continually present and work with teachers as part of my day job. Below are some of the conference presentations that I’ve delivered. If you’d like to know more, please contact me.
Glossary – It’s more than just words
The Glossary Module is a wonderful tool within Moodle. It can be used for many things, beyond just a “glossary”. Learn how to supercharge your Glossary. Learn the basics of the glossary. Learn how to extend the use of the Glossary to provide a terrific experience for your users. Choose to either listen and soak in the presentation or create with me as we go (requires access to a Moodle course). January 2016
Moodle – Make Moodle Work for You
Setting up an online course from scratch is hard. Learn how you can leverage powerful features built into Moodle to make blended learning easier to use for staff, students, and your IT people. From simplifying the frontpage to leveraging the powerful sharing features, this session will spark discussions about how to better provide blended learning opportunities for students.
Moodle Admin – Improve Moodle from the Inside Out
This workshop is designed for Moodle Administrators. Discover how to simplify your Moodle homepage to be an
asset not a distraction. Explore advanced plugins and filters that enhance Moodle. Learn about how User Roles
can promote sharing of content and better collaboration within Moodle. Attendees will need to have administrator
rights. We will be demonstrating from a Moodle 2.7 server. Most of what you learn can be accomplished by a
Moodle Administrator on the front end of Moodle. (Co-Presented with Chris Kenniburg- January 2015).
