How to leverage/ rethink your existing instructional materials to work for remote delivery

Thursday, August 27, 2020 - 1:45pm to 3:15pm

Part 1: Start where you are, don’t start over! (45 min)

Facilitators: Dr. Matthew LaGrone and Dr. Victoria Chen, University of Guelph-Humber 

Fall 2020 calls on faculty to be flexible, adaptable, and resourceful in these uncertain and ever-changing times. This situation presents both new challenges and unique opportunities, and rather than starting from scratch, we encourage you to build on what you have and move forward! 

In Part 1 of this webinar, we will share platforms for synchronous and asynchronous lectures and learning opportunities, ideas for keeping students engaged virtually, and resources you have available to support you throughout your semester. 

Part 2: Teach Online – Tips for Success (45 min)

Facilitators: Victoria Kennedy and Carolyn Creighton, OpenEd – University of Guelph  

Part 2 of this webinar is intended for instructors facilitating distance education (DE) and remote learning courses at Guelph-Humber in the Fall 2020 semester.

After this session, you will be able to:

  • Define the similarities and differences between distance education (DE) and remote-delivery modes of online teaching;
  • Identify CourseLink tools and select the best tools for specific course tasks;
  • Implement strategies to communicate with students online through CourseLink, organize course content effectively, generate student motivation, generate engagement and interactivity, and provide feedback on student work directly within CourseLink; and
  • Identify and locate various support resources for the facilitation of online and remote-delivery courses
