Yes, You Can! Tips for Moving Online at Short Notice

Presented By:

Laura Saunders, Associate Professor at Simmons University SLIS

Melissa A. WongInstructor in the School of Information Sciences at the University at Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Presentation Description:

Even for veteran online teachers, moving a face-to-face course to an online format with only a week or two notice is daunting, but it can be done. In this workshop, seasoned online instructors will share ideas for getting your course up and running quickly, including:
• Taking stock, re-purposing existing materials, and deciding on formats (synchronous vs asynchronous)
• Keeping students engaged
• Reviewing best practices for both synchronous and asynchronous sessions
• Planning for flexibility for you and your students
