Developing a Successful Distant Learning Session: Strategies and Logistics

Friday, June 26, 2020

12:00 PM To 1:00 PM VIA ZOOM

Event Description

Skype. Zoom. Webex. Until a few months ago, these terms were not widely known in the education realm. The novel coronavirus turned our world of pedagogy upside down. We have had to learn to teach to an empty room or speak into a faceless computer using these technologies. Distance learning has taken on a different meaning since COVID-19, and Dr. Adi Pinkas, Assistant Professor, Department of Anatomy and Structural Biology, will offer suggestions on how to teach effectively in the normal that we are experiencing.

In this remotely delivered workshop, Dr. Pinkas will discuss different types of distant learning sessions, both active and passive, how to design and implement them, as well as the potential pitfalls with them. He will also recommend how to troubleshoot technical issues. The first half of the session will be dedicated to presentation of these issues. The second half will be devoted to a general discussion and questions about your specific lectures. Novice and expert will learn something on how to design and carry out a distance learning session.

By the end of this session, you should be able to:

  • Design and carry out an effective distant learning session
  • Conduct adequate logistical and technical troubleshooting during the session
