Abstract/Description

Started in July 2020, the UD Flexible Teaching listserv quickly attracted over 200 readers and about 150 conversations. You helped each other answer questions about how best to take attendance in a blended class. You helped each other figure out how to best mount a phone to create a makeshift document camera with resources you have at home. You helped each other find the best app to recommend to students for scanning in written work.

You shared your teaching expertise, your tips and tricks, your strategies for managing your time — all with other instructors you may not even know. It was a time of isolation and quarantine, but the connections built and lessons shared from this group of educators made UD’s community shine brighter than ever.

Let’s keep this up for the spring semester and beyond. How might we better serve each other and share our knowledge as we continue teaching and learning in these unprecedented times?

Goals for Attendees

Inform attendees about the benefits of the Flex Teaching listserv if they weren't aware. Discuss how the listserv can be improved or utilized to better serve the audience. Brainstorm other ways in which faculty and staff can connect and share knowledge with each other.
