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

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).
