Webinar: Teaching Large Courses Online

Tue, 7/25/2017 | 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM | Online Meeting


Participants in this session will:

  1. Understand aspects of designing and delivering a large course that differ between in-person and online modes, including challenges and things that are easier.
  2. Gain actionable advice about how to make effective use of online teaching tools at scale.
  3. Know how to find support and resources available for developing hybrid and online courses, and how to maximize their benefit.
  4. Learn how to build active student engagement into learning activities and assessments in a large course.

We know that online courses can be as good or better than in-person courses. How does this hold when there are hundreds of students? Is it possible to provide high-quality and engaging online learning for large courses?  The answer is yes, emphatically.

In this webinar, guest presenters Brian Lower and Kylienne Shaul will talk about their experience developing and teaching ENR2001: Introduction to Environmental Science, an online course with 500+ students. They will focus especially on those elements of the course that provide students with more than a passive, presentational experience, including student-generated e-textbooks, multimedia assignments and peer-review poster events. There will be plenty of time for Q&A, as well as practical guidance for making the most of available resources and support.

Note: Registrants will receive the webinar link in an email the day before the event.
