This virtual workshop is for instructors preparing to teach their upcoming courses in a remote instruction format. How does remote instruction change how you will teach your course? In this virtual workshop we will discuss strategies for how to approach remote instruction, focusing on:
strategically using asynchronous and synchronous instruction methods;
demonstrating how to develop your bCourses site as your virtual classroom;
incorporating formative assessments into your course; and
building opportunities for student-to-student interaction.
This session will highlight topics that are covered with greater depth in the Remote Instruction Guide, a self-enrollment course available to all instructors on bCourses. It’s recommended that you join the guide and review it before the workshop. If you have a CalNet ID, you can enroll in the guide via the following self-enrollment link: https://bcourses.berkeley.edu/enroll/AJMHL8. If you do not have a CalNet ID, you can still view the guide using the following link: https://bcourses.berkeley.edu/courses/1492740.
Please note that this session will not cover the basics of how to use Zoom or bCourses. The workshop Tools for Remote Instruction will cover those topics. You can register for Tools for Remote Instruction via the event series on the AIS: https://ais.berkeley.edu/event-series/tools-remote-instruction.
