Webinars and More
Adobe Education Exchange is a great place to learn how to use Adobe products (free for all COD employees) to build content in your courses or to engage with students.
While sometimes geared more towards K-12, there are plenty of topics that are broad enough to engage higher ed professionals, too.
Again, while sometimes more K-12 driven, these webinars offer advice on teaching from experts, with tips and tools that can also work in higher ed.
The OLC offers a wide range of webinars on teaching and technology. If you can’t attend, you can also access the recordings.
