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

Session 1 (originally scheduled for July 27) has been cancelled. Please contact education@asmusa.org to transfer your registration to the Sept. session. 

This series provides participants the opportunity to learn about a current topic of interest to undergraduate STEM educators and then engage in a dialogue with colleagues to share ideas and learn from one another. The session will include a brief overview of a topic, an interactive portion for participants to get feedback on their ideas and a summary/debrief of the topic. For each topic, a “resource” document will be shared. 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! This series will help faculty implement new teaching strategies learning during the COVID-19 pandemic to prepare for returning to the classroom in fall 2021 and beyond.

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 your classroom.
  • 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 your students’ emotional well-being.
  • Feel better prepared for the upcoming fall 2021 term and beyond.

Format

  • 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. The recording will be available until Dec. 31, 2021
Please plan to attend all live events in your session, as the events will be highly interactive. Events will be recorded and made available to everyone who registers.
