Keep Teaching: Strategies and Considerations
Teaching in times of disruption can be challenging because you need to rethink how you teach on short notice while supporting student learning, but it also is an exciting opportunity to think creatively about your most essential course objectives and how you meet them. In this workshop, we will discuss some practical considerations for how you plan to modify your course, highlight some tools and strategies you can adopt, and share tips for ensuring your students feel supported throughout. Facilitated by Janet Syed.

Experiential Learning Online: Discussion and Resource Swap

How might I provide an alternative experience to the actual hands-on lab and address same learning objectives? Laboratory learning experiences are designed to help students master a task, observe a phenomenon, dissect or manipulate a specimen, create computer programs, design experiments, or do a variety of other activities to help address course learning objectives. The thought of replacing this real-life experience with an online replacement may not be the best scenario, but under certain circumstances, there are some reasonable replacement options. This session explores and shares all of the options. Led by Janet Syed, CETL.

There are many, many tools that you could use to record presentations. Panopto is a great option because you can start with a PowerPoint presentation or other file (like Word documents, PDFs, or images) and record narration to accompany it. Best of all, your students can also use it to record and submit a presentation that they would have delivered in class. In this workshop, we will provide an overview of Panopto and how to get started with your first recording. Led by Janet Syed, CETL.
