In this virtual brown-bag lunch session, April Eisman (Associate Professor, Art & Visual Culture) will talk about her experiences teaching online. In particular, she will share some of the tricks and tips she has learned along the way for both synchronous and asynchronous courses -- from embedding questions in videos, to using Google docs, to regularly "touching base" with students, this session will cover a variety of ideas.
Whether conscious of it or not, instructors and students bring most of who they are to the learning environment, including their biases and stereotypes. Biases can emerge in the form of (micro)aggressions during class discussions, in student-student interactions during group or lab work, or interactions between students and instructors.
