We all pivoted in the past year to remote or distance learning in an attempt to keep the disruption of the pandemic to a minimum. We found that some things worked well and others not as much. How can we bring intentional course design and human presence to the online classroom? This learning lab focuses on this question.
We hope the following tips, tricks, and pedagogy techniques give teachers and instructors an extra boost of creativity and motivation. These episodes are perfect for your drive to work or can be integrated as a ten-minute think session to get your wheels turning before stepping into the classroom or “zooming” onto the computer screen.

This competency-based, skill-building course will help non-U.S. students, first-generation immigrants, and foreign-born professionals better understand and master American online learning, as well as other U.S. virtual environments, for college and career success. In the post-COVID era, the course can also be very instrumental in assisting U.S.-based institutions in organizing remote learning activities for their current or prospective international students.
