Abstract/Description

Active learning, or engaging students with your material using discussion, role playing, group work, etc., is a well-accepted method of classroom instruction at the University of Dayton. However, many active-learning activities were developed under the assumption that students are sitting in a common space without required social-distancing. How do we adapt active learning and teaching methods to account for a blended classroom (simultaneously online and in person) with social distancing? How are students supposed to work in groups? How should the instructor manage in-person and online groups at the same time? What is the ideal size for an online group as opposed to an in-person group? In this session, participates will engage in group discussion to brainstorm ideas and share experiences from the previous semester.
