This session will be held on Friday, February 26th, 2021 at noon.
When students transition to studying at university, they often find themselves in classes that are 10x larger than those they have known in high school. Even pre-COVID, engaging all students in such a large class – ensuring they feel supported and that someone cares about their learning — is challenging. The shift to fully online and distributed classes, across time zones and geographies, has made this even more difficult.
In this session, Simon Bates, Associate Provost (Teaching and Learning) from UBC’s Office of VP Academic, will share some practical (and not too time- or resource-intensive) suggestions of how he has approached this across a range of intro science courses at UBC.
Join us this Friday to understand and discuss the measures to engage and support students better in the classroom environments.
