As universities transition to online learning in the wake of campus closures to slow the spread of COVID-19, many instructors have to navigate an altogether new learning environment. The CIRTL Network has developed a 90-minute workshop to equip instructors with strategies to promote inclusion, engagement, and student assessment in online synchronous (live) courses.

Rather than focus on technical instruction for a particular platform, this workshop will provide instructors with an inclusive, evidence-based pedagogical framework they can apply as they shift their courses from the face-to-face format to the online environment.

== Describe several techniques for creating a LC within a learning environment, including strategies that promote positive interdependence between learners so as to accomplish learning goals.
== Describe and recognize the value of drawing on diversity in the development of teaching plans (including content, teaching practices and assessments) to foster learning.

Robin Greenler is the Assistant Director for the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL). Learn more from Robin Greenler's webpage.

*About the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL)*
ISU's membership in CIRTL is sponsored in a partnership between CELT and the Graduate College.

CIRTL's mission is to enhance excellence in undergraduate education through the development of a national faculty committed to implementing and advancing effective teaching practices for diverse learners as part of successful and varied professional careers. It was established with the intent of preparing future science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) faculty across the nation, to ultimately improve the STEM learning of all students, at every college and university, and thereby to increase the diversity in STEM fields and the STEM literacy of the nation. The three CIRTL core ideas are: Evidence-based Teaching, Learning Communities, and Learning-through-Diversity.

This event is promoted by Iowa State University's Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching
