Abstract/Description

In this session, we will demonstrate our engagement methods to illustrate how they work and can be adopted in similar settings. We are diverse former LTC Teaching Fellows who have adopted various methods of engaging students in blended/online classes.

  • Phu Phung (Computer Science) uses online quizzes with peer discussions in the classroom and online using Zoom polls and Socrative.
  • Yvonne Sun (Biology) uses a variety of Zoom tools and Google apps to solicit real-time feedback.
  • Erick Vasquez (Chemical and Materials Engineering) uses live multiple-choice quizzes followed by team assessment while in Zoom and in the classroom.

OBS — open-source software to produce asynchronous videos — will be discussed. Attendees will have an opportunity to discuss the potential implementation of these online learning techniques in their courses.

Goals for Attendees

Experience engagement methods from a student’s perspective. Provide an opportunity to share feedback and experiences. Learn about new software to produce videos: OBS studio. https://obsproject.com/
