Finding yourself in a rut with your online activities? Looking for some new ideas for engaging your students in active learning, while bringing a sense of fun and playfulness to your online class? During this session, you’ll experience a digital escape room, and participate in trivia-style review games. After playing, we’ll share how we created the games, and talk about how to adapt and apply the strategies to your own course content.
About the Teaching Online & Hybrid Conversation Series
DLINQ has convened the Teaching Online and Hybrid Conversation Series (TOHCS) since Fall 2018. Originally conceived of as a way to prepare faculty to take advantage of emerging opportunities to design online and hybrid courses and programs, the goal of the series was to help faculty explore and address both pedagogical and technical issues related to intentionally designing online and hybrid courses that reflect good practices in online learning, as well as Middlebury’s unique approaches to teaching and learning.
In the COVID era, in which much of the institution is teaching partially or fully online, we see the TOHCS as a place where faculty can come together in a learning community focused on continuing conversations and peer support around online teaching and learning.
You can find information and artifacts from earlier events in the conversation series archived on our Teaching Hybrid & Online page.
