Online and Blended Teaching: Notes from the Field
Monday, May 8, 12:00-1:30 pm, Swift Hall Common Room
Increasingly, university educators are expected to incorporate new technologies in assignment design, assessment, and student learning; teaching online is more and more a reality with which educators need to be familiar, not only when teaching online exclusively (e.g. MOOCs) but also in the classroom itself. The wide variety of platforms associated with these resources pose new questions and problems, new challenges and opportunities, to educators committed to teaching excellence. Join the Craft of Teaching for a panel sharing their experiences of teaching with a range of online resources (and requirements).
Lunch will be served! Please RSVP to by Friday, May 5, so we can provide accordingly.
William Rando (Director, Chicago Center for Teaching) and Emily Joy Bembeneck (Associate Director of Pedagogical Innovation, Graham School) will offer an introduction to online courses, online resources in conventional classroom settings, and the scale of this new format for teaching higher education. Then, two emerging educators at the Divinity School who have been called upon in their teaching to work with online platforms (Adam Miller, PhD Student in History of Religions; Aaron Hollander, PhD Candidate in Theology) will offer ‘notes from the field’ sharing their experiences, expectations, and strategies with putting online technologies to work in their classrooms.
