APRU Virtual Teaching Series Part 3: Creating an Active Learning Environment
Innovation in Online Learning
Transitioning our courses online has provided opportunities for innovation. Have you tried a new technology? Created videos for a flipped classroom? Discovered a new way to engage students in a difficult topic? Changed your content to respond to the realities of the pandemic? In this session we will hear about online teaching innovations from APRU teaching experts. Using the breakout rooms, we will then have time for discussion in small groups and return to the large room for the full group discussion. Join us for this opportunity to learn from our network as we continue to adapt our courses to remote instruction.
