The fall 2020 Teaching and Learning Symposium will be held Oct. 23 with this year’s theme focusing on student engagement and building community in online courses with Jesse Stommel, Digital Learning Fellow and Senior Lecturer of Digital Studies at the University of Mary Washington, as the keynote speaker.
Unlike years past, this symposium will be held online via Zoom and begin at 9:00 a.m. Registration for the event closes Oct. 22 at 5:00 p.m.
Stommel's interactive keynote, Start by Trusting Students: Active Learning and Inclusive Pedagogies in Moments of Crisis, will examine several facets of teaching students including accessibility concerns, addressing the hard questions of inclusivity, and connecting students.
Instead of the much appreciated "speed sessions" where UNL faculty share teaching tips and techniques in rapid succession, the fall symposium will feature a virtual poster session. Symposium registrants and attendees will have multiple opportunities to browse and respond to featured instructional approaches.
