Starting this semester, instructors and students will use a new Gradebook system in ReggieNet, Illinois State’s customized learning management system. As part of Faculty Prep Week, the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology will offer special walk-in workshops specifically devoted to teaching with this enhanced tool. Also, CTLT’s specialists will be available for one-on-one consultations by appointment, with advice on everything from effective syllabi to active learning techniques. Learn more at CTLT.IllinoisState.edu/PrepWeek.
Unlike most CTLT workshops, these special Faculty Prep Week sessions do not require registration. Simply walk in, sit down at a computer, and start learning! We recommend that you plan to arrive a few minutes early. Parking is limited around our building, so please consider walking.
All events are held at CTLT’s facilities in the ITDC building unless otherwise noted. If you need a special accommodation to fully participate in an event, please call the CTLT main desk at (309) 438-2542.

Students and instructors will use a new Gradebook in ReggieNet starting in the fall of 2017. This tool offers new features and a new, more “spreadsheet-like” experience for instructors. Join us for this one-hour workshop, where you’ll learn the ins and outs of this updated resource through hands-on experience. You’ll leave prepared to use the new Gradebook on your first day of classes.
If you are brand-new to using ReggieNet, consider attending one of the “Getting Started with ReggieNet workshops” instead (which will include a look at the new Gradebook tool).
