Online Instruction: Pedagogy and Practice

Facilitator: Elizabeth Royal

This seven-week hybrid class will give you the opportunity to hone your online instruction strategies. This class takes a deeper dive into the mechanics behind planning an engaging, interactive, and student centered online class. We’ll cover topics like active learning, formative and summative assessments, and instructor presence. We’ll spend the in-person sessions mapping our courses and sharing ideas with each other.

The course is designed for instructors of all skill levels, from the new instructor to someone who has been teaching for a while and wants an infusion of new ideas and streamlined strategies. Even if you are not teaching fully online course, you are welcome to enroll. Many of the instructors in the previous cohort were surprised by how much information from the course worked in their face-to-face classes, too.

Coaching your Students to Give Quality Peer Feedback

Facilitator: Elizabeth Royal

Peer review can feel challenging to implement but when it’s facilitated well students are able to engage with each other and the material at a high level. This workshop will show you how to incorporate peer review into any course, design the review process so it’s effective for your population of students, and coach your students as they work through the peer review process.

11:00 am – 11:50 am
Understanding how Students Use Textbooks: Lessons from the Research


One of the most common issues facing faculty at the university level is that students never seem to read their textbooks. As a result, fully utilizing the textbook in a course is a challenge. One landmark study on textbook use found that high school and university students struggle to use the assigned texts as a learning tool but community college students perform noticeably better. This workshop will explain why that is, outline how students use textbooks, and provide you with strategies to encourage and teach students to use their books more effectively in your courses.

1:00 pm – 1:50 pm
