Blending Asynchronous and Synchronous Teaching

Date: 
Tuesday, June 16, 2020 - 4:30pm to 5:30pm

Audience:
Teaching Assistants, future faculty

This event is part of CIRTL's Online Teaching Office Hours event series, designed to provide TAs and future faculty with a chance to informally explore specific topics related to online teaching and learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.

How do I synthesize and connect synchronous and asynchronous aspects of my course? How can I foster a blended learning environment that engages and promotes equity among all my students? This interactive online session explores the key choices an instructor makes in identifying the content and mode of learning between asynchronous and synchronous in online teaching and learning. This session helps instructors make the connections between modes that best motivate student activity and learning, and think through the timing for which these different components occur. This session will be a mix of interactive workshopping and Q & A. Questions to discuss could include:

  • How do I synthesize and connect synchronous and asynchronous aspects of my course?
  • How can I foster a blended learning environment that engages and promotes equity among all my students?
  • How do I decide what content and activities should be delivered asynchronously versus synchronously?
