Teaching Remotely: Workshop Series

The CAFE is launching Teaching Remotely, a new professional development (PD) workshop series that will be facilitated as an asynchronous series with optional synchronous elements. Faculty can choose the option that best suits their needs.

The workshop series will apply evidence-based principles to support student learning. Teaching strategies including discussion facilitation, learner-focused feedback, and formative and summative assessments will be covered.

Teaching Remotely has the following modules:

  • Module One: Planning Development Remote Delivery
  • Module Two: Assessments and Rubrics
  • Module Three: Building Content and Choosing Technology
  • Module Four: Student Collaboration and Facilitating Discussions Remotely
  • Module Five: Developing Instructional Presence

Each module will have an optional synchronous session where faculty are welcomed to engage in the content live and/or join to ask questions about a specific topic.

Synchronous session dates will be available in the course calendar. The first synchronous session will focus on Assessments and Rubrics and will be held on May 29th. Faculty may work along with their own course materials during the series or may choose to join specific sessions based on their needs.

The assessments in this course are optional and we are available to provide feedback, if faculty wish to receive input.
