TOHCS: Productivity and Online Courses
April 30 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm EDT
Friday, April 30, 2021
10:00 – 11:15 am Pacific / 1:00 – 2:15 pm Eastern
Online via Zoom
In this session we’ll identify ways to work efficiently while adamantly rejecting the harried “cult of productivity” lifestyle that Meredith Farkas details here. We’ll start by examining some general productivity philosophies as a frame but will move quickly to specific ways to free up time and energy for the work you want to do. Please come with tips, problems, and the desire to interact with the group.
If you have particular questions, great tips or problems you’d like to solve feel free to add them to the end of this document.
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.
