Designing Group and Team Projects for the Remote Environment

Facilitated by Dana D’Angelo, Clinical Professor, Department of General Business, LeBow College of Business and Johanna Inman, Director, Teaching and Learning Center

Thinking about creating a group or team project for your fall course, but worried about how to structure and implement it remotely? In this workshop, we will look at best practices to optimize student interactions, productivity and learning from projects that can be used in remote courses. We will also explore a variety of technology options that can help students work more effectively in groups and teams, and discuss ways to adjust project deliverables for remote (or online) courses. 

Lab-based Learning in the Remote Classroom
Facilitated by Meshagae Hunte-Brown, Teaching Professor, Department of Biology, College of Arts and Sciences and Johanna Inman, Director, Teaching and Learning Center

Translating meaningful lab experiences to the virtual environment remains one of the major issues for some instructors as they try to figure out how to pivot to remote teaching. In this workshop, we will talk about how to get over the hurdle of translating what was intended to be a ‘hands-on’ experience and discuss some of the advantages of virtual labs. The workshop will also focus on best practices and discuss Labster virtual labs as a case study. Virtual labs aren’t right for every lab course, but they are more applicable than many might think.

Facilitating A Seminar-Style Course Remotely

Facilitated by Kevin Egan, Director, Center for Interdisciplinary Inquiry, Pennoni Honors College and Katherine Barak, Associate Director, Center for Interdisciplinary Inquiry, Pennoni Honors College

 

This workshop will focus on techniques for facilitating an online seminar-style class. Workshop leaders teach within the Honors Program, but the tools are translatable to any seminar-style course. During the session, participants will explore effective techniques for engaging students, generating thoughtful discussion, and designing a course and individual class sessions with conversation and collaboration in mind. The workshop leaders will guide participants through these techniques, while also creating space for participants to share their experiences and best practices along the way.

Global Classrooms (GC) and Community-Based Global Learning (CBGL) as Models for Socially Responsible, Engaged Remote Learning

Facilitated by Steve Vásquez Dolph, Assistant Teaching Professor, Department of Global Studies and Modern Languages, College of Arts and Sciences and Adam Zahn, Director, Global Engagement 

This workshop will introduce faculty to the use of Global Classrooms and Community-Based Global Learning (CBGL) as models for engaged remote learning. Global Classrooms are courses that engage Drexel students with students at a university abroad through a range of interactive technologies and project-based learning. Community-Based Global Learning (CBGL) courses integrate student learning and community engagement, promoting collaboration and partnership with community groups and/or community members. Special attention will be given to the importance of developing reciprocal partnerships and negotiating power and privilege in the classroom through best practices. Faculty will have the opportunity to practice developing Global Classrooms and Community-Based Global Learning courses, workshopping their ideas with their colleagues.

Partially Flipping the Remote Classroom

Facilitated by Monica Ilies, Associate Teaching Professor, Department of Chemistry, College of Arts and Sciences and Johanna Inman, Director, Teaching and Learning Center

A flipped course reverses the lecture and homework paradigm. In a flipped course, students watch a series of short videos dedicated to specific concepts or topics prior to class. In-class time is then devoted to elaborating on the concepts, brainstorming real-world examples, and providing time for students to work through problems and case studies, while they experience active and/or collaborative learning strategies, such as think-pair-share or small group work. This gives instructors the opportunity to address questions and misconceptions, with the ultimate goal of developing higher-order thinking skills. This workshop will focus on a few key steps to help instructors adapt some best practices from the flipped classroom to improve our online, hybrid, or remote learning environments.
