The move to online learning has forced many of us to look for budget-friendly instruction tools. This summer, let’s gather to share tools we've used, tools we've discovered and tools we'd like to try. In the Instruction Roundtable Tool Time Challenge, participants can choose whether to learn about as many tools as possible or focus on one or two to learn really well and create a learning object you can use. 


  • Online kickoff event on June 12th at 1 p.m. - We'll talk about things we've tried and things we're interested in trying, compiling a list of possible tools to explore.
  • Summer Slack discussion - Throughout the summer, we'll work on our chosen tool using Slack to ask questions & offer support. Perhaps you'd want to work with another IRT member on a learning object. 
  • August wrap-up event - we'll come back together and share learning objects that were created or, for those who learned about as many tools as possible, which tools look the most interesting to try in the future.  

There's no commitment so if all you want to do is the kickoff event and wrap up event, that's fine as well but we hope you'll come play this summer! 

If you're interested, please fill out this form.


If you can't make the kickoff event, you can still join us on Slack.
