Online Teaching Community
When: Thursday, October 20th 11:00 am – 12:00 noon
Where: SCI 331
When we shift our teaching from face-to-face to online, many questions arise. How do we connect with our students? How do we design effective learning experiences that are achieved online? How do we know our delivery methods are effective when we aren’t in the same room as our students? What is the appropriate balance of synchronous and asynchronous activities for our learners? Making that transition can be challenging and rewarding. But wouldn't it be nice if we had a group of colleagues to talk with about the experience? We invite you to join a new community here at UBCO that will focus on examining teaching and learning in an online environment. Whether you are just considering taking on an online teaching assignment, have taught online once or twice, or have been teaching online for years, please join our inaugural meeting on Thursday, October 20th . In the first meeting, we will talk about how we can support and learn from one another. In future meetings, we may even walk the talk and meet online! We look forward to designing this new community together!
