Education Resource Center Series: Busting Myths in Online Education: Faculty Examples from the Field

September 22, 2021 : 12:00pm - 1:00pm at Online Workshop

Online Workshop

Event Details

This 60-minute interactive workshop is based on a recent article "<a href="" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Busting Myths in Online Education: Faculty Examples from the Field</a>" contributed to the Journal of Clinical and Translational Science (JCTS) special issue on online education. Facilitators, who are also some of the article's authors, present 3 common myths in online education and 6 related case studies from faculty who have busted those myths. Participants will work with colleagues in breakout groups to relate to the article by sharing other myths they held or heard, translating effective online teaching practices to in-person teaching, and focusing on how empathy and social interaction impact the learning experience. Particularly with many returning to in-person teaching, this workshop is recommended for university faculty and/or those assisting faculty with their courses or other educational offerings and trainings because effective online pedagogy can still be used for in-person learning. This might also be of interest to TAs and graduate students pursuing a career in teaching. While it is not necessary to have read the article before the workshop, doing so is encouraged.
