Workshops

Bellevue College eLearning Vertical LogoYour Bellevue College eLearning Team offers workshops featuring practical tools for teaching web-enhanced, hybrid, and online courses. Our goal for each workshop is for faculty to walk away with new skills and knowledge about a practical tool that they can begin to use right away in their own courses.

Note: The workshops listed here are for Faculty only. Most workshops are listed for 30 minutes and are concentrated on using Canvas and technologies that work with Canvas. If you would like to attend workshops on pedagogy/andragogy, they are available through the Faculty Commons.

All student-related eLearning information will be available on the student eLearning website.

In person, workshops will be in D140 inside the BC Library.
