Workshops
If you can’t teach the class in person, “Zoom” it
Presenter(s): Shiao-Chuan Kung (Center for Online Learning)

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. [Details...]

Guided Explorations
Module-Making Camp
Presenter(s): Shiao-Chuan Kung, Deepa Rao-Sisario & Abigail Torres

June 1-3, 2020 Participate in 2.5-day camp on building an online module. We welcome professors teaching face-to-face, hybrid and online courses!  When inclement weather, medical issues or professional conferences prevent instructors from meeting with their students in person, online modules can be designed to still guide students through a learning experience and not interrupt the flow of the semester. A learning module is a collection of subject-related teaching materials that is carefully sequenced and chunked. In addition to course content, modules contain learning outcomes, directions, learning activities and ways to ascertain whether students have understood the material. During Module-making Camp, we will work intensively to support you as you design one online learning module. We ask you to come prepared with basic skills in Blackboard, to set aside the time to attend all three days and to complete the creation of an online module at the end. We will allocate time for individualized support for recording mini-lectures and for hands-on work with tools such as VoiceThread and Padlet. [Details...]
