Shifting Educational Practices in a Pandemic: Exploring Modality for Design and Assessment

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

In this keynote, participants will learn about design shifts that are necessary to consider in making the pivot to various modes of online teaching and learning. Specifically, we will discuss design opportunities for synchronous learning (e.g., live video classes and decentralized learning pod video meets), asynchronous learning (e.g., chat and social media backchannels), and assessment opportunities for online learning environments. We recognize sudden shifts in practice can be stressful and will focus on preparing teachers to make this shift as smoothly as possible. This presentation welcomes your participation. Please send your questions for consideration in advance of the session to: virvine@uvic.ca or via Twitter at @_valeriei. We will also generate a shared space for documenting questions and responses during and after the session, which will be recorded. Recommended Pre-Reading: Irvine, V. (2020).
