Remote Teaching Workshops
Join the Teaching and Learning Center for these just-in-time workshops designed to empower and prepare you for effective remote teaching. These workshops are not a step-by-step guide for specific technologies, rather these interactive sessions provide the opportunity to share teaching strategies with colleagues and brainstorm ways to implement them within your own course(s).
Remote Teaching Strategies to Keep Students Engaged
Many of our students are likely experiencing feelings of social isolation at this time, but when designed well, our courses can be a supportive learning community for students. So, how can you encourage students to stay connected with you, your course materials, and each other during a period of remote learning? In this workshop, we’ll explore recommendations for three types of interactions every online course should have to keep students engaged!
Remote Teaching Strategies for Facilitating Synchronous Class Meetings
While it is possible for you to meet your learning goals through asynchronous activities, synchronous class meetings can increase student engagement in online courses. However, whether you choose to use Zoom, Collaborate or another web conferencing technology, encouraging participation online can be challenging. In this workshop, we’ll explore a few strategies for facilitating synchronous class meetings that reduce “Zoom-fatigue” and increase students’ engagement with you, the course material, and each other.
