Published on Jun 4, 2020 by Jess Reider
Experienced Full Sail educators share their strategies in this collection of virtual professional development sessions.
The transition to distance learning has been no easy feat for educators, but teachers have not only survived the pivot, but also made the best of an unexpected situation. For teachers looking to further improve their students' virtual learning experience, this collection of online professional development sessions features Full Sail faculty and staff sharing their learning strategies for more effective digital classrooms.
Peer-to-peer conversations are critical in learning development. In this session, Full Sail University Graduate Studies Course Director Dr. Kari Whaley explores ways too strategically incorporate conversation into the classroom so that students grow and expand their thinking while engaging with their peers. Viewers will learn the role of conversation in learning environments and explore strategies like "serial testimony" and "think-pair-share."
This session features Full Sail's Faculty Development Director Eric Bunner-Sorg discussing strategies for providing feedback to students that is meaningful and engaging, even with the lack of the classroom setting. Discover technology solutions for communication while learning how to remotely adapt to students’ emotional needs.
In this workshop, educators are invited to learn best practices for taking their Math or Science classroom online. Viewers will learn to use free videoconferencing tools to conduct synchronous lessons that can also be recorded for students to later reference. Leave this session with ideas and resources you can immediately implement into your digital classroom.
With the difficult transition to distance learning, educators are in need of support. In this session, a panel of Full Sail instructors talks about some of the challenges they have faced and the variety of ways they have embraced distance learning. Topics include interacting with students, converting to online classes, overcoming technical issues, and the challenges teachers may have when faced with a lack of resources.
