Wanda Beyer, Arts and Science Online

Wanda kicks off the Teaching Voices series by explaining all the resources available to instructors transitioning to remote learning at the Faculty of Arts and Science, including workshops, a “how to” guide, and a demo course in onQ. In this video, Wanda pulls from her years of experience in online learning to encourage instructors to recognize their strengths, start from where they are at, and keep it simple and successful. Creating community and inclusive spaces is an important aspect of Wanda’s approach to course design, and she provides a few key ideas of how to do this in online teaching and learning.


Bill Nelson, Biology 

Bill shares his experiences in redesigning a large, introductory statistics course, shifting it from on-campus to online. Engagement is a central design principle for Bill, who asks, “Is what I’m doing working to engage students?” Though the learning may look different, Bill explains how he creates an engaging learning community with low tech solutions through a blend of asynchronous and synchronous activities, attention to consistency and clarity, scaffolding, and timely communication. 


Danielle LaGrone, Religion

Danielle talks about how she creates and maintains connections, inclusion, and collegiality with students online through strategies around online presence. Danielle fosters lightness and a personal, accessible tone, through various features of onQ, including course announcements, discussion forums, surveys, and messages around expectations. In this short film, Danielle explains how creating mutual expectations and recognizing everyone as colleagues creates an environment where everyone is able to learn from one another and is included.
