Considerations for Remote Learning

Adapting courses to a remote format can be challenging. Take inspiration from the following faculty and their experiences delivering remote courses this past summer and fall.

Create Opportunities for Students to Ask Questions

Listen to Profs. Pallavi Sirjoosingh from Chemistry and Richard Koestner from Psychology discuss how they adapted their remote courses to allow for synchronous interaction time with their students, and what effect this had on the learning and teaching experience in their courses.

TurningPoint and Zoom Polling

With all the available technologies for remote learning, which do you choose for your course? Listen to Profs. Giulia Alberini from Computer Science, Stephanie Weber from Biology, and Kenneth Ragan from Physics discuss their firsthand experience using TurningPoint and Zoom polling.

Reducing Content to Increase Learning

There’s already too much to cover – where can I possibly cut content? We’ve all been there. Reducing content is a challenging feat, but making even a few small adjustments can help students to better understand key course concepts and topics. Listen to Profs. Jessica Flake from Psychology and Armin Yazdani from Physiology talk about the changes they have made to create space in their courses for meaningful student learning experiences during remote delivery.
