TOHCS: Building Learning Ecosystems for “The New Normal”
October 14, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm EDT
This event has been canceled. Please keep an eye on our events page for another opportunity in November to discuss what hybridity means for a vibrant campus.
October 14, 2022
1:00-2:15 pm Pacific / 4:00-5:15 pm Eastern
Online via Zoom
Guest Facilitator: Dr. Stephanie Moore, Assistant Professor, Organization, Information and Learning Sciences, University of New Mexico
The 2022 EDUCAUSE Students and Technology survey report recommends that institutions “Engage in conversation with faculty and staff to redefine instructional modalities and disrupt the ‘face-to-face versus online’ dichotomy.” In this conversation, Dr. Moore will draw on metamodernist philosophy, architecture, and learning ecosystems frameworks to help us consider, what is the new normal? What were we norming, and what do we want to norm now? How do we enact our new norm in a way that architects flexibility and sustainability into the design of the system?
About the Teaching Online & Hybrid Conversation Series
DLINQ has convened the Teaching Online and Hybrid Conversation Series (TOHCS) since Fall 2018. The goal of the series is 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 and beyond, 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 Online & Hybrid page.
