Time: 14:00 -16:00
Meeting ID: 915 0729 2612
Passcode: S7J1dw Abstract:
When classes were forced online at my university due to the global pandemic, many of us rushed to find ways to adapt what we had been doing in the classroom to work online. By the second semester, I personally felt more comfortable with the technology that I was using and began to take advantage of the tools available. Now, with all of my lessons going back to the classroom, I face the opposite challenge: I want to take the innovations that emerged in my teaching online back to the classroom. In many ways, I will use a low-tech or no-tech option. In this presentation I will specifically show how I will allow student tracking of their assignment progress, encourage greater peer-teaching, and have students track their learning progress better.
