Resources from Summer 2020 Faculty Working Groups

During the summer of 2020, five different faculty working groups met for at least four sessions in order to discuss best practices, share resources, and plan online courses for the Fall 2020 semester. The groups each had a different focus including: Writing Intensive Courses, Active Learning Activities, Discussion-Based Courses, Clinical/Fieldwork Courses, and Large Lecture Courses.

Below, we provide links to resources that came out of the different groups’ meetings. In particular, the two faculty leaders of the Active Learning group, Julie Van Peteghem and Jeff Allred, compiled a robust group of resources in folders on a shared Dropbox site that you can access here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/4668jf2645ug7nz/AAC8RS8DxbAI3NHQIyxTCu5Ua?dl=0.
