Teach Smarter: Maximize Your Impact in the Online Classroom

When: Thursday, March 29, from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Where: Communications Center, Room 101
Presenter: B. Jean Mandernach, PhD  

The online classroom offers a plethora of instructional opportunities. So many, in fact, that it may interfere with teaching effectiveness. The ubiquity of the online classroom combined with an ever-evolving list of instructional technologies, limitless educational resources, and a plethora of pedagogical tasks (facilitating discussions, grading, feedback, content development, one-to-one communication, etc.) often leaves faculty struggling to prioritize their limited teaching time.  While research supports the value and relevance of fostering an engaging, personalized, interactive online classroom, it stops short of explaining HOW to create this experience. To be effective, faculty need to know more than WHAT to do; they need the skills, abilities, and tools to implement pedagogical strategies in an efficient and effective manner. The presentation will examine the use of learning analytics and instructional technologies to prioritize teaching tasks, streamline repetitive instructional activities, guide content development, and foster more meaningful student interaction… all without further burdening faculty workload. 

RSVP by Monday, March 26, before noon.
