Faculty Support for Online & Blended Teaching

From pedagogies, course design, and teaching strategies to producing light board and green screen videos, step-by-step help in Canvas, or brainstorming technologies to support an assignment, COLRS is here to serve and support you! Our staff is happy to meet with you in our space, your office, or virtually. Making an appointment is recommended, but we accommodate walk-in appointments whenever possible.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the COLRS staff is working remotely. Please call or e-mail for immediate assistance or attend our twice-daily open office hours via Zoom (10 am & 2 pm CT). Zoom access links can be found on the COLRS calendar.
