Session Description:

The transition to online learning happened virtually overnight. It has presented new challenges for many faculty and students who had to transition from an on-ground to online format. The transition has made the workload for some of our students and faculty an overwhelming experience. For faculty, it presents a plethora of new stumbling blocks that students and faculty now have to navigate. Mute…unmute, unequal internet service, new disruptions in the classroom, and designing new curriculum. Not only do we have to transition to a new class format for our on ground classes, we are dealing with the general distress caused by COVID. This session will help faculty gain an understanding of the needs of students in the online classrooms, how their individual situations during this time interface with the classroom learning environment, and through it all, how to keep your students engaged. We will provide tools and strategies that can help faculty adapt to their new online classroom and help students succeed.
