Teaching MVPs: How we helped students transition to online learning
During the spring semester of 2020, when all classes had to quickly pivot to online learning, the Office of the Provost implemented a “student-nominated award program to recognize faculty and instructors who went above and beyond to provide a high-quality education experience for their students.” Join some of these Teaching MVPs to get practical ideas for helping your students succeed in online and hybrid environments.
Leading the 21st Century Classroom: Pedagogical Approaches to Inclusion
As higher education, and West Virginia University more specifically, work to diversify our student body and create an inclusive campus environment, it is critical that we examine the classroom experience. While we often think about the curricula and the instructors and learners, an inclusive classroom consists of a dynamic, multifaceted approach to teaching, facilitation, and assessment. Grounded in the Diversity Inclusivity Framework ( Nelson Laird, 2014) participants will take part in an analysis of the ways in which their courses can be re-examined to unlock the full potential of their students.
Teaching Modalities for the Fall Semester and Beyond
What is the difference between the various course delivery options? You may have heard the terms “hybrid,” “hyflex,” “synchronous,” and “asynchronous.” In this session, you will learn what these terms mean and what they entail for course design and teaching. You will also explore different strategies so you can determine what will work best for you and your students.
Academic Technologies: Tools to Help You and Your Students
Have you ever wondered if there is a type of technology that can help you and your students do something better or do something that could not be done before? Do you want to know about tools that can be used in any modality of class, be it face-to-face, hybrid, hyflex or online? Join us in this session to explore a few of these tools and learn how they can empower your students and enrich your teaching.
Library Resources for Teaching and Research
Library faculty will provide an orientation to key resources and services, highlighting how the Libraries engage with faculty and students to support research, teaching, and publishing. Included: course content via electronic reserves, research instruction for your students, support for open access publishing, how to access books and journals, and your questions answered.
Health Sciences Teaching
The session will include strategies for effective teaching from health science faculty. They will share some of the triumphs and challenges they have faced so far during this pandemic. Instructional support offered through the SOLE platform will also be addressed.
Simulation Evolution for Today and Tomorrow
This session will show different simulation devices that can be utilized for both Live and Virtual educational encounters.
Join us to see how technology can bridge the gap between clinical and classroom learning.
NFO Concludes: Stop by the main zoom room to talk or ask questions.
