Online Teaching Forum Offers Innovative Ideas

Professor Steven Meyers shared ideas on connecting course material to the social justice mission more actively via civic engagement.

RU’s second Online Teaching Forum was held by the College of Professional Studies this past Thursday, and it created, once again, many excellent discussions on innovative teaching. About 25 faculty and staff members attended the event. There were two panel sessions, in which faculty members from several colleges presented material on encouraging civic engagement, planning class field trips, and utilizing resources, such as an embedded RU librarian, and Blackboard 9.1’s newest features. The day ended with two roundtable discussions on social media and communication issues within the classroom.

Attendees listen to Professor Carolyn Wiley's presentation about frameworks for creating online courses.

Associate Professor Carl Zimring introduces Kristin Broadwell and Lynette Washington (from RU Online) for their presentation of Blackboard 9.1's newest features.

Specifics of each session will be posted soon via an online proceedings so that those unable to attend can also benefit.
