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 5-day 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 face-to-face environments, remote synchronous interactions (e.g., Zoom and BlueJeans) as well as for asynchronous interactions (e.g., recorded lectures, discussion forums). Participants will walk away with concrete techniques and activities that can be implemented immediately in their hybrid and online courses. We will also host an optional one-hour synchronous Q&A session for those enrolled in the workshop on Thursday, 9/17 at 4:00 pm.
About our online asynchronous workshops:
Our 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) or or 2 weeks. Participants are able to contribute independently at their own pace over the workshop period; however, there may be intermittent deadlines to optimize participant interaction. The workshops will require approximately 2-3 hours of engagement, including reading about evidence-based practices, viewing multimedia, engaging in online discussion forums, and submitting reflective assignments. The optional synchronous sessions are made available for participants to engage with each other and the facilitators in real-time, to ask questions, share practices and get feedback on their implementation plans.
