DUPLICATE: iTeach: Rekindling the Love for the Hub: Inspiring Rich Conversations in the Discussion Board - WEBINAR

Tuesday, July 23, 2019 :: 7:00-8:00 PM

Intended Audience: CMU Faculty

Facilitated by Stefanie Lassitter and Kerri Raymond

Navigating the digital terrain of the online classroom differs significantly from face-to-face instruction. While online teaching is convenient and can be done from the airport terminal to the home office, the process of teaching online requires diligence, discipline, and focus. The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning understands the nuances of facilitating the abstract space of the online classroom, and is excited to host a 3-part series, offered bi-weekly, called iTeach. This series is designed by online educators for online educators, and each session targets specific classroom strategies that engage learning through the Blackboard system. Join Stefanie Lassitter and Kerri Raymond for evidence-based practices that support faculty in managing common challenges in the online class. Sessions are offered via WebEx in Weeks 2, 4, and 6 during Summer II on Tuesdays from 7pm-8pm ET.

This session will focus on the online modality, the discussion board is the “hub” of the classroom where students bring their perspectives together; however, managing discussions can feel one-dimensional and underwhelming. With practical techniques, educators can foster inspiration, creativity, communication, and peer connections. In this interactive session, we will describe various techniques to increase engagement and participation, illustrate effective discussion questions, and demonstrate various methods to increase presence, critical thinking, and meaningful learning.
