On Monday, June 22 from 2:00 – 3:00 PM, the first of three panel discussions hosted by the Brown Center took place on Blackboard Collaborate. The panelists shared their online teaching experiences focusing on the style of online course they teach (e.g., synchronous, asynchronous, hybrid/blended), strategies they employ or have employed to bolster student engagement, foster discussions (both in real-time and asynchronously), give effective exams and quizzes, and manage assignments.
Thank you to Dr. Heather Evans-Anderson and Dr. Stuart Michelson for their efforts on this panel. Below is a recording of this session.
The next session will be on Tuesday, June 25 from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM where we will have our new Brown Faculty Fellow for Remote and Distance Learning Bill Sause and a representative from OOLET will hold a discussion focused on optimizing the use of platforms such a Blackboard Collaborate Ultra when teaching an online course. The panel will also provide responses to questions about problems encountered while teaching an online session. The link for this session is given below.
