Using Video for Assignments and Lectures in Remote & Hybrid Teaching

One of the most powerful tools in the remote and hybrid environments is the use of video. Whether you are attempting a flipped classroom, an asynchronous method of course delivery, or utilizing embedded quizzes, effective use of video can help to engage your students. There are also several ways that you can have students utilize videos on assignments and projects that increase the sense of community in the remote and hybrid classroom. We recommend that you watch the How-to videos and read the documentation provided here before the session as the sessions will focus on strategies for teaching with the tools as opposed to focusing on how to use the tools.

Increasing Student Interaction in the Remote & Hybrid Classroom

One concern that we often have in the remote or hybrid environment is how we keep students engaged in an online environment. Add to that, that some of us will be teaching in a hybrid method with some students present and others online.  This session will focus on how we can create assignments, course materials, and class periods that not only provide students with information but actually engage them and allow them to critically reflect on the material and interact with each other. We recommend that you watch the How-to videos and read the documentation provided here before the session as the sessions will focus on strategies for teaching with the tools as opposed to focusing on how to use the tools.

Teaching in the Hybrid Classroom

One new challenge that many of us are faced with this coming semester is learning how to effectively teach in a hybrid classroom. There are many tools, strategies, and methods for ensuring that you are providing an engaging class for both remote and in class students. While we will have all classes recorded or livestreamed with Echo360, that does not provide us with information on how to teach and engage students, it just gives us the ability to reach those students who may not be present in the room. This session will focus on a few strategies for using technology and different pedagogical methods in this environment. We recommend that you watch the How-to videos and read the documentation provided here before the session as the sessions will focus on strategies for teaching with the tools as opposed to focusing on how to use the tools.
