Making the most of live sessions
Live Zoom sessions can be particularly useful for instructors and students. These sessions can create community among students, let students work in breakout rooms, allow for live Q&A, let students discuss material with each other, or allow students and instructors to think through problems and questions together. But these live sessions can feel awkward or stilted as students and instructors navigate the new technological platform and expectations in this new ‘space’. Participants in this workshop will discuss how to communicate with students about preparation for and participation in these sessions as well as ways to take advantage of Zoom’s tools so that students will be able to make the most of them. By the end of this workshop, participants will have created some guidelines for students in their sessions and a plan for a specific session.
This workshop is designed for instructors who will be teaching online classes this summer.
