The Center for Online Learning & Innovation (COLI) will host a meetup on Tuesday, April 23 at 3:30 p.m. in Old Main 219. The meetup will focus on online and hybrid courses (this was rescheduled from Thursday, April 11).
Jennifer Stowe, professor in the School of Education and Human Services’ Literacy Program, will lead the discussion to examine power and respect for different voices and community in teaching. The starting point is the face-to-face classroom. Consulting critical theories in education, the meetup will explore new teaching relationships that build virtual, rich and productive communities in online and hybrid courses.
Join the conversation and discover new ways to develop strong social and teaching presence in online or hybrid courses! All faculty members are welcome!
