Remote Teaching Tips:

This LACOL webinar shares hands-on practice with five experienced liberal arts teachers from Swarthmore College, Vassar College, Williams College, and Washington and Lee University.  This team regularly collaborates to deliver online/hybrid classes for the liberal arts.

Description: Many liberal arts colleges are asking faculty to consider how they move their teaching online as part of emergency preparedness in the face of COVID-19 or other disruptions to regular classroom teaching.  Tips and guides are circulating, and faculty get lots of support from their local IT and teaching and learning centers.

Note: The focus of this webinar is primarily pedagogy and learning design. Demonstrations will be done using Zoom as a tool; approaches can be adapted for similar tools such as Google Meet or Skype. Be sure to check with your campus support team on the recommended tools and instructional support.

The interactive webinar with five liberal arts colleagues emphasizes the ways they’ve learned to teach effectively online while maintaining a liberal arts approach that emphasizes personal interactions and critical thinking.
