Prepare for Fall 2021

Teaching Strategies for the Hybrid Classroom - Hybrid courses typically combine online recorded instructional lectures or readings with in-person, active-learning activities. In this workshop, faculty will explore best practices in employing hybrid pedagogy and consider strategies for determining in-person and online activities that best meet course learning objectives.

Engagement Techniques for Online Synchronous Courses - Online Synchronous courses require students and faculty meet on a schedule through Zoom or other web-conferencing platform. This workshop will provide insight on establishing meeting etiquette and expectations, Zoom fatigue and ways to keep your participants engaged using breakout groups, in-session polls and other online collaboration tools like Jamboard.

Building Community in the DE Classroom - Distance Education (DE) courses connect students across CWU University Centers and beyond. In this workshop faculty will explore strategies for building community across campuses using introductory online discussions, in-class collaboration and group activities.

Humanizing the Online Asynchronous Course - Effective online asynchronous courses provide schedule flexibility to students and faculty, while still building personal connections. In this workshop faculty will explore sustainable communication strategies and course activities that emphasize the human components of teaching and learning.
