A Zoomside Chat, hosted by CIEL

A lot has changed in the world of teaching and learning over the past few months. Some of us have been energized by this new reality. Others can’t wait to get back to how things were before. One critical question is,  “CAN we go back to what was before?” Now that we’ve exploded the traditional model, what are the opportunities to rethink teaching and learning, even as we return to the physical classroom?

In this inaugural “Zoomside Chat,” Anwen Burk and Bill Roberson take stock of what we have learned in our big, unannounced, disruptive experiment in virtual learning. They will engage in an exploratory dialogue about what we’ve gained, where we’ve struggled, and where we might go from here.  They also invite participants to join the conversation to explore the future, by imagining the shape of university instruction in the coming months and years.

Here are some questions that we expect to consider:

  • What do we know about our students that we did not know before, and how will that affect our teaching?
  • Which traditional “rules,” expectations, or “standards” proved not to be so relevant to student success, after all?
  • What will be the “new normal” of university teaching and learning?

All VIU Faculty Members are invited to join. We look forward to chatting!
