About Our Session Formats

Lunch & Learn: this type of session is primarily focused on improving teaching and learning through a discussion format where faculty share their experiences and the session leaders facilitate the discussion and provide resources. These sessions are held on the Augusta & Bangor campuses, with remote participants connecting through Zoom.

Workshop: this type of session is designed to be hands-on, where faculty can come to learn about and try a tool, resource, or strategy. Leaders present how they use the tool, resource, or strategy, and provide instruction and space for practice. These sessions are held on the Augusta & Bangor campuses with remote participants connecting through Zoom.

Webinar: this type of session can cover a range of topics, but the main difference is that all participants join remotely online through Zoom. In a Faculty Show & Tell, a faculty member will highlight a tool or strategy that they use and walk the participants through their course or materials with details and lessons learned. In a technology webinar, time is spent in presentation mode, demonstrating a tool, with additional time spent in breakout sessions where participants can receive individualized assistance while they complete a task.
