CATE Summer Institute

CATE Summer Institute

Summer Institute for Online Teaching

Starting June 1, 2021, the Summer Institute for Online Teaching will be delivered in a format analogous to a flipped course, with asynchronous learning modules available through Blackboard Ultra paired with optional online discussion forums and optional synchronous sessions facilitated by the CATE team. To help instructors plan for fall 2021 instruction, these online discussions and synchronous sessions will enable instructors to apply the principles learned in the asynchronous modules, consider pedagogical questions, and reflect on instructional ideas that may be specific to a particular discipline, course level, class size, and/or modality of instruction.

Module topics:

Module 1: Creating Equity and Inclusion
Explore the principles of inclusive pedagogy and learn how to apply them in Flames Flex learning environments.

Module 2: Enhancing Student Engagement
Identify ways to implement learning activities in your course that increase student interaction and engagement.

Module 3: Creating a Learning Community
Foster student success by creating a supportive community for students to succeed in your course.

 

Module 4: Implementing Authentic Assessment
Create meaningful and significant measurements of student learning and mastery of course learning goals.

Module 5: Leveraging Technology
Choose specific technology to create a student-centered learning environment that also suits your teaching needs.
