How Teaching Online Changed My Classroom Teaching
Online teaching demands that instructors plan their courses in ways that are quite different than the process they use to develop their in person courses. In addition, they use online tools that they might never ask students to try in a face to face course. However, the process of thinking about an online course and considering different tools for students opens up new ways of thinking about face to face classrooms. In this session, two experienced classroom teachers who have also taught for many semesters online talk about how teaching online has changed what they do in in their bricks and mortar classrooms.
Teaching with Technology discussions bring faculty together to discuss why and how they might use specific technologies in their teaching. Each conversation focuses on a different goal or challenge and on particular technologies faculty use to address those aims. Each session is moderated by two faculty members, who will share their experiences and guide the discussion; instructional technology support staff will also participate to help faculty consider how to implement the ideas discussed. Faculty from across Penn are welcome. To encourage interactive discussion, though, registration is limited to twelve faculty.
The Center for Teaching and Learning provides lunch for all those who register in advance.
