Hunter’s Academic Center for Excellence in Research and Teaching (ACERT) invites you to participate in a Teaching Scholarship Circle on online and hybrid courses. In this semester-long series of four seminars, faculty with some experience teaching online and hybrid classes will share their challenges and effective practices. We will explore pedagogical questions derived both from our own practice and from current scholarship, with an eye towards deepening our practice and further developing our courses. Discussions will initially focus on four main themes: structuring online and hybrid courses, designing materials and activities, helping students get ready and stay on track, and assessing students and giving feedback. These topics may be adjusted depending on the desires of the group.
Sessions will be co-facilitated by Janet Patti, Shiao-Chuan Kung, and Nancy Guerrero. Each session will begin with one or two participants briefly sharing a part of their course that is relevant to the week¹s theme. The facilitators will then lead a discussion drawing on the demonstration, short readings distributed in advance, and related questions. In the final session, we will share artifacts (e.g., new assessment plans, different assignments, additional materials) that demonstrate how our courses have changed as a result of participating in the group.
The meeting schedule is listed above. During the first session, the group will identify that we would most like to address and each participant will identify an aspect of their own course to work on over the course of the semester. We encourage you to attend all the sessions, which will build on one another.
