Monday, September 21 CELT Workshop: Addressing Diversity and Student Engagement in Online Leaning: Lessons Learned from the Recent Pandemic
September 21, 2020 1:15 pm–2:15 pm
COVID-19 presented common issues for instructors concerning teaching students who were new to learning from a remote environment, expectations for assignments and assessment, and addressing stressors faced by students.
The outbreak of the COVID-19 virus in early Spring 2020 revealed two main concerns: the majority of instructors, 65%, reported using new teaching methods with no previous experience teaching online (Lederman, 2020) and campus closings that had a greater impact on disadvantaged students who face multiple challenges such as loss of income, housing or food instabilities (Baker-Smith, et al, 2020). Presenters will discuss theory and best practices that enhance quality pedagogical instruction to a diverse student body learning in an online environment. Tools and strategies for addressing the divergent student need instructors will encounter when rapidly adapting to online learning and beyond will be presented through case examples and discussion. Led by Annette Grape and Margaret Lane, faculty in the Department of Social Work.
