Session Information

Abstract

*No special preparation required*
Welcome to ITL and this table! Join your fellow Mason instructors to informally discuss this table's topic. At the table, you will find desk copies of related resources (digital versions are available below), and an experienced Mason colleague who has experience and strategies related to this topic. 
Not sure what to talk about?  Here are some conversation starters:
  • Share a little about yourselves:

    • Department

    • Years at Mason

    • Courses you are teaching

    • What excites you about teaching?

  • What brought you to this table?

  • What role(s) do teachers play in the face-to-face classroom (coach, encourager, police officer)? How might those roles change or stay the same in an online class?

  • Think of some learning that students need to do for your class that is fundamental skills (remembering, identifying, defining): what are ways to assess that learning? How might you assess that learning online?

  • Think of some learning that students need to do for your class that is higher-order learning (evaluation, application, analysis, creation): what are ways to assess that learning? How might you assess that learning online?

  • Students in an online class need to be self-regulated learners, predicting their challenges, managing their time, creating their motivation. What can you plan to help them strengthen these monitoring and goal-setting skills?

Have an example or resource to share?  Submit through this link and we'll upload it after the conference: http://library.gmu.edu/publishing/submit
