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. You can learn more about these tools by signing up for a Getting Started workshop here: https://ais.berkeley.edu/events/upcoming
