Getting to know students and creating community during remote instruction
About this session:
In this webinar I will share a few tools I used in my large class to connect with my students during the Spring quarter. I will share a brief overview of weekly surveys, lecture prep assignments, and weekly group assignments my students completed. We will then talk about designing your own assignments and surveys with the goal of replicating interactions and connections with your students you might be missing during remote instruction. My surveys included questions that were intended to promote good study habits, gather information about student experience, and they ended with a get to know me question (for example guess my favorite spot on campus). Group work assignment was intended to build community and lecture prep assignment allowed students to ask questions privately about the material they were struggling with. During the webinar, you will have an opportunity to reflect on your classes and develop tools you can use both for remote and in person instruction.
