Learn how to adapt online teaching practices to hybrid or in-person classrooms.

Session one (initially scheduled for July 27, 2021) was cancelled. To transfer registration to the Sept. 2021 session, please email education@asmusa.org.

This highly interactive series is designed to help faculty implement new teaching strategies learned during the COVID-19 pandemic. Participants will learn from and share ideas with colleagues. Each webinar will include a facilitator-led overview of the week's topic, an interactive portion for participants to get feedback on their ideas and a summary/debrief of the subject matter. In addition, each facilitator will share a resource document for their topic.

New! You may be eligible for a registration discount.

Webinar Series Learning Goals

At the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to do the following:
  • Identify new teaching strategies and approaches for their classrooms.
  • Adapt online and remote teaching practices from the COVID-19 pandemic to new hybrid or in-person modalities.
  • Design courses and learning experiences that promote equity.
  • Better respond to their students’ emotional well-being.
  • Feel better prepared for the upcoming fall 2021 term and beyond.

Format

While the format of this series is a hybrid of the highly popular "Teaching Undergraduate Biology" (webinar series presented Jan. 2020 – April 2021) and "Microedu Live!" discussions (webinar series March 2020 – April 2021), the content is all new. 
  • Live events will include short presentations, focused discussions, group work and large group discussions.
  • There will be opportunities for discussion and further learning with course participants outside the live events.
  • Attendees will receive a link to the recording (excluding any breakout room activities) after the live event.  
Because these webinars will be highly interactive, attendees should plan to attend the live events. In addition, each webinar will be recorded and made available to all registrants until Dec. 31 2021.
