Is anyone interested in collaborating on a panel about how their teaching changed in response to the pandemic?
In the last year and a half, I have watched as the students enrolled in my all-online, asynchronous seven-week courses, enter those courses weary and wary. Expecting as one observed, another round of "quizzes, discussions, and a paper," they found an experience focused on a personalized, depth not breadth, subject focus and a writing requirement that combines foundational history writing skills and a public facing career competency opportunity. Instead of a paper, each student as volunteer "contract historian," researches and creates an infographic on behalf on a museum. The students are engaged, excited, and leave the course more aware of how their skills "translate" into professional resume language. If you might be interested, please email me at email@example.com If you would prefer to speak by phone or Zoom, we can set that up too.
