Making Active Learning Work in Hybrid and Online Courses

Are you looking for ways to increase student engagement in your hybrid or online classroom? In this asynchronous workshop, participants will learn to translate active learning strategies that they may be familiar with from face-to-face instruction to remote contexts to engage students. Participants will also explore strategies suitable for remote synchronous interactions (e.g.  Zoom and BlueJeans) as well as for asynchronous interactions (e.g. recorded lectures, discussion threads). Participants will walk away with concrete techniques and activities that can be implemented immediately in their hybrid and online courses.

 

Asynchronous Seminar Series Workshops:

Asynchronous online workshops are delivered in Canvas over 5 days, beginning on Monday at 8:00 am and ending on the following Friday at 11:59 pm. Participants are able to contribute independently at their own pace over the 5-day period; however, there may be intermittent deadlines to optimize participant interaction. The workshops will require approximately 2-2.5 hours of engagement, including reading about evidence-based practices, viewing multimedia, engaging in online discussion forums, and submitting reflective assignments.
