Faculty Seminar Series on Teaching & Learning

Theme: Creating Success When Teaching & Learning Remotely

Come join a dynamic learning community by participating in this specially designed online seminar series for all faculty (across all disciplines and rank). We’ll share strategies and best practices from research-based pedagogy. Great conversations and handouts provided.

 

Session 2: Engaging Students through Active Learning in Online Synchronous Sessions

 

Students: Being online in class is so boring. I’m not learning anything and I’m  just sitting here.

Teacher: Why aren’t the students more engaged? This content is so exciting.

 

Learning is not a spectator sport (Chickering & Gamson). Students must be cognitively, physically, and affectively engaged for deeper learning and retention to occur. Yet, we have to admit, there are many distractions and the attention span of our students can be relatively short. How do we manage the amount of content that we should teach while providing opportunities for our students to be engaged in active learning, especially as we teach and learn remotely?

 

We’ll explore and practice several active learning strategies, beginning with those that can be easily implemented and are of low risk. We will maximize the opportunities through zoom.  Also, we’ll learn about Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATS), active learning strategies that are ungraded and provide important information about how well our students are learning.   

 

*This workshop counts towards completion of any of CITL's Teaching Certificates. To learn more about our Teaching Certificate program please visit https://go.illinois.edu/teaching_certificates.
