TOHCS: Reflecting on an Unprecedented Year
May 24 @ 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm EDT
Monday, May 24, 2021
9:30-10:45 am Pacific / 12:30-1:45 pm Eastern
Online via Zoom
We’re dedicating this last TOHCS session of the 2020-2021 academic year to reflection and conversation around the past year of remote and hybrid teaching. What lessons will we take from this year into the future? Has this experience challenged you to think differently about how you teach, in ways that will stick with you? What’s next for you?
We’ll frame our conversation around a provocation inspired by The Manifesto for Teaching Online: what if we think of online as the privileged mode? As we move back to face to face and hybrid teaching, what will now be less possible in those settings, as compared to teaching online? What do we want to carry with us from remote teaching that can enrich our face to face teaching?
Please join us for conversation and camaraderie as we wrap up an unprecedented year.
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.
