Active Lectures for Online Teaching (Faculty Development session)

Thursday, September 17, 2020 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Cost: Free Event

In the spring, faculty had to quickly adapt courses to the online format. It can be difficult to use preferred face-to-face teaching strategies in Zoom, and many faculty find themselves stuck in a lecturing rut. But lectures can thrive with the addition of Active Learning (AL)—even online lectures! 

Join Dr. Richard Van Eck, Associate Dean for Teaching & Learning at the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences, and learn: 

  • how the five levels of AL, from simple to complex, can be effectively implemented in lecture classes. 
  • how these strategies translate to online classes on Zoom through the use of polling, participant icons, breakout rooms, and chat features.
  • how to approach other types of instruction, such as precepting and discussions, in an online environment. 
  • how to solve YOUR challenges or concerns.

This session will include Q&A and discussion with Dr. Van Eck and Dr. Adrienne Salentiny, instructional designer (SMHS). Bring your burning questions!

This faculty development session is part of the Evidence-Based Teaching (EBT) series hosted by the Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship unit of Education Resources and the Office of Education and Faculty Affairs at the School of Medicine & Health Sciences. This series, held every third Thursday of the month, showcases topics of interest to the medical and health education community and is free and open to anyone at UND. Previous faculty development sessions can be streamed from our website:
