Some of us are mid-way through our semester and others on the quarter system are beginning a new term, perhaps the first they have taught online. I would like to share online pedagogy resources for everyone. First, we were fortunate to hold our fourth Celebrate [Online] Teaching: A Non-Conference today. I really want to thank those who shared methods that have been working for them online. Also, through online observations, I have seen it is clear that many are integrating research-based pedagogy in their online learning opportunities. A summary of the effective teaching methods are showcased in the Celebrate program, and a few others observed include:
Zoom Synchronous sessions, using screen share to project shared Google Slides, where multiple students respond by writing on the slides and track progress through shared Google Sheets;
Combing GoFormative assessments to engage students and provide real time feedback;
Using Zoom Breakout Rooms and Whiteboard to discuss prompts - return to whole class to check conceptual application using Kahoot formative assessment;
Using Explain Everything to screencast narrating problem solving using eWhiteboards (students solve their own problems using the same approach);
Creating and sending physical lab kits to students with learning outcomes, instructions for storyboarding via Jamboard, reflection prompts and project guides;
Designing various progressive tasks for e-Project-based Learning.
Also, here are two new Online Pedagogy Resources that you might review:
Online Math Course (Rolla, 2020); and
UCSD Teaching Online Wiki (Jemmott, 2020).
