Past Faculty Discussions

Active Learning Online: Using Synchronous Time to Engage Students, with Professors Kim Bowes; Classical Studies, Florian Schwarz; Linguistics and Doris Wagner; Biology

The faculty panelists discussed how they have organized synchronous class time to emphasize students’ active learning. Participants considered ways to lead a class using structured activities to help facilitate students’ thinking and engagement with course concepts and each other, while enabling instructors to provide guidance and feedback.

A recording of the discussion is available.
