The Summer Faculty Workshop will offer opportunities for synchronous and asynchronous learning. In addition to the asynchronous, instructional Codio course, which you can move through at your own pace, each day of the workshop will feature:

  • Daily Kickoff
  • Open Q+A
  • Scheduled Office Hours

You’ll have the opportunity to work through your own computing courses as you go—meaning by the end of the workshop, you’ll be set up for fall!

The Course

Codio's Customer Success Manager has developed an exclusive Codio course for anyone that attends a summer faculty workshop. The course will feature instructional and interactive content that will teach you the ins and outs of the platform. Each module is specifically designed to showcase exactly how to build, edit, or design your course—whether it’s from scratch, a resource, or your own existing material.

Suggested Course Pacing

The asynchronous format of the instructional Codio course provides flexibility so you can complete the modules on your own terms and work through the content most helpful to your goals.

If you are new to the Codio platform or want to be guided through the process, we suggest the following structure:


Module 1 - How to select and use the right resources for you

Module 2 - How to edit, customize, and mix and match resources


Module 3 - How to author content in Codio

Module 4 - How to create auto-graded test and quizzes

Module 5 - How to review student work using collaborative tools


Module 6 - How to create the student experience

Module 7 - Features of Interest


Daily Kickoff and Open Q+A

Sharon Jason, Customer Success Manager, will provide attendees with an overview of the workshop’s structure, the Codio course you’ll work through asynchronously, and more. Each day, she'll provide demonstrations inside Codio that align with the course modules.

After each Kickoff session, you'll have the option to stay for a live Q+A session with Sharon, as well as engage with other attendees.

Office Hours

Attendees are invited to book one-on-one troubleshooting sessions with our Customer Success Manager and Computer Science Content Developers during Office Hours. This is a perfect opportunity to get hands-on help preparing your Fall 2021 course inside Codio.
