In our Live Online...Live! sessions, we've realized that including a visual of doors that lead to different breakout rooms is helpful in making sure that students get to the activity that they've been assigned. Originally we pulled some door images from Pixabay, but I like the uniformity of the size and look that I get when I create my own doors using MS Word.
Watch this 2-minute video to see how easy it is to create objects (and give them a little bit of a 3D feel) in Word!
This week I started out with a simple, fun tech tool recommendation for you - but then got carried away...
In this week's session, we shared several strategies for low- to mid-stakes active learning assignments. These can be modified for any teaching modality (in person, asynchronous online, or synchronous online), but we model a few of them in the synchronous online environment with Webex Meetings.
Active Learning Part 2 is coming up in two weeks, where we will share some higher-stakes, more complex strategies with you.
If you missed the LOL session, you can still get the info by watching the video below. And if you DID attend, be sure to watch through to the end - we answered a couple of questions regarding students who join Webex via their smartphones!
This afternoon, we'll be facilitating a session on active learning to engage your students with their peers and with the content in meaningful ways. In the meantime, here's a great Faculty Focus article, "Enhancing Student Engagement & Interaction with Online Digital Tools."
