Online Teaching Toolkit: Effective Principles & Methods
Preparing Future Faculty's Summer 2020 Webinar Series
Tuesday & Thursdays in July

Tuesday, July 7, 1:00pm to 2:00 pm 
Mastering Online Class Facilitation
Facilitator: Jonathan Aragon, PFF Fellow
In this webinar you will learn how to facilitate responsive, inclusive classes that make it hard to not succeed. The facilitation methods you learn in this webinar will dramatically reduce teacher administrative tasks and improve your students' experience overall.

Thursday, July 9, 1:00-2:00 pm
Understanding Issues of Engagement 
Facilitator: Sarah Eckert, PFF Fellow
In this webinar, we examine issues surrounding student engagement. We will explore possible reasons for student disengagement as well as how we might address such situations to promote learning and engagement. 
 
Tuesday, July 14, 4:00-5:00 pm
Academic Integrity in Online Classes
Facilitator: Catherine Conner, PFF Fellow
In this webinar, we will discuss taking a proactive approach to academic integrity and explore the strategies and tools you can use to develop a classroom culture that fosters honesty, integrity, and accountability. 
 
Thursday, July 16, 1:00-2:00 pm
Promoting Active Learning Online
Facilitator: Noah Ringler, PFF Fellow
As many classes have moved online, both students and professors have struggled to maintain class engagement. This should come as no surprise as teaching courses online is relatively new for many and requires a different set of skills. Accordingly, this webinar reviews specific strategies to facilitate student engagement online including a flipped classroom, group discussions, and problem-based learning.
 
Tuesday, July 21, 7:00-8:00 pm
Managing Writing in Online Classes
Facilitator: Catherine Conner, PFF Fellow
In this webinar, we will discuss some of the challenges of teaching writing online and how you can help students engage with writing in meaningful ways, synchronously or asynchronously. We will also explore assessment and feedback options. 
 
Thursday, July 23, 12:00-1:00 pm
Reflexivity in Crisis and Beyond: Strategies for Your Class
Facilitator: Cristal Almonte, PFF Fellow
In this webinar, educators will examine why practicing reflexivity during a time of crisis is important and how they may use reflexivity to inform their teaching to improve their communication with students and their assessments. 
 
Assignments and Assessments Online
Tuesday, July 28, 4:00 - 5:00 pm
Facilitator: Shamini Dias, PFF Director
Inclusive assignments and assessments support students in learning and mastery. How do we do this effectively in online spaces? In this webinar, we explore how to design online assignments and assessments that are formative and support students' learning autonomy and self-efficacy. 
 
Building Community in Online Courses
Thursday, July 30, 4:00-5:00 pm
Facilitator: Shelby Lamar, PFF Asst. Director 
Building a sense of community in our courses increases student achievement, learning, and retention. Yet, it often seems difficult to build and sustain a classroom community in an online environment. This webinar will explore research-backed principles and practices that can help you build community in synchronous and asynchronous online courses.
