Pivoting to remote online teaching has been a learning journey that has felt more like a roller coaster ride than a road trip at times. Let’s continue on this adventure together.
Join the online book club as we read selected parts of Tony Bates’s Teaching in a Digital Age and continue evolving and improving our teaching practices through reading, discussion, and self-reflection.
“Through 12 informative chapters, Teaching in a Digital Age: Guidelines for Teaching and Learning answers your questions and provides helpful guidance and suggestions on a host of topics including:
- How do I decide whether my courses should be campus-based, blended or fully online?
- What strategies work best when teaching in a technology-rich environment? What methods of teaching are most effective for blended and online classes?
- How do I make choices among all the available media, whether text, audio, video, computer, or social media, in order to benefit my students and my subject?
- How do I maintain quality of teaching, learning, and resources in a rapidly changing learning environment?
- What are the real possibilities for teaching and learning using MOOCs, OERS, open textbooks?
While understanding and respecting the individual nature of teaching, Tony talks theory, options, best practices, point-by-point strategies – offering clear, practical, and actionable advice and guidance based on research and best practices.”
As a group, we will decide on which chapters to focus and set goals together. The book club is a supportive environment in which to share ideas, questions, and learn about effective online teaching practices, EdTech theory, and hands-on online tools.
