Tuesday, August 23, 1:00 - 3:00, Butler Library 181B
We know that online instruction has had a positive effect on face-to-face classrooms, as our online teaching community of practice re-thinks content presentation, interaction and feedback. From SUNY Learning Network online faculty surveys, instructors consistently report that fully online teaching transforms their face-to-face teaching.* Web-enhanced (presenting content) and hybrid (replacing face-to-face seat time) teaching has now taken hold on our SUNY campuses. This workshop aims to bring faculty together to discuss best practices that have emerged from these experiences. We will present an overview of asynchronous teaching strategies that work, and then investigate with you the questions that arise when planning to incorporate these activities into face-to-face instruction:
- Effective online instructional practices
- Measuring student-student interaction
- Creating unlimited practice opportunities for learners
- Leveraging multimedia and online resources
- Student-centered learning
- Providing instant feedback to students
- Tracking student progress
- Paperless writing submissions
- Archived communication (public/private)
- Resources available for faculty
Group Discussion -
- Share what you know
- How do we blend synchronous and asynchronous learning most effectively?
- What works? What doesn’t work?
- How do students react to a blended classroom?
- What resources are available for faculty who wish to blend?
- What are the best questions to ask when considering this approach for a given course or discipline?
- What are the most effective face-to-face strategies for students?
This workshop is intended for all faculty.
No online teaching experience is required.
