Since Fall 2018, the Office of Digital Learning & Inquiry has convened a conversation series for faculty to explore and address pedagogical and technical issues related to teaching and learning online. On this page, you’ll find information about future events, links to notes, slides, and video from past events, as well as general resources on the topic of teaching and learning online.
As Middlebury moves into more hybrid and online learning opportunities, these conversations will help to prepare faculty to take advantage of these opportunities, while ensuring that we are designing courses and programs that reflect our unique values and approaches to learning.
The audience for this series is faculty across the Middlebury institution, those who already teach online and those who would like to learn more about it.
The goals for each session include:
- Provide a community of learners for people interested in online learning
- Challenge assumptions and surface ideas around teaching and learning online
- Provide concrete tools or techniques for designing and implementing critical digital online pedagogy
