If you can’t teach the class in person, “Zoom” it

What will you do if inclement weather or a medical issue prevents you from teaching a class in person? Holding a virtual class using an online conferencing tool can be an alternative to canceling class. Zoom is a free conferencing tool that you can use to discuss a reading, lecture over slides, or solve a problem on a whiteboard. To make the session interactive, you can use text chat, screen sharing, polling, and small group breakout rooms. Teaching online is very different from teaching in person and takes preparation and practice. Join us at an online workshop session where you will learn the basics of Zoom and strategies to facilitate synchronous online classes.
