The Provost’s Office and the MacPherson Institute are pleased to introduce a new virtual panel series called Teaching Remotely: Shared Experiences. This series will bring together faculty, instructors and staff from across McMaster to share their experiences in developing and contributing to remote teaching.
Engagement, Disengagement, and Managing Conversations
October 22nd, 2020
12:30pm – 2:00pm
In a synchronous classroom environment, there are many considerations for instructors while they are teaching remotely. It can be incredibly rewarding to have real-time student engagement in content through discussions, but it can be also be overwhelming to juggle multiple screens, chats, video/audio, accessibility considerations, privacy/recording concerns, and more.
The Teaching Remotely: Virtual Panel Series returns this fall, with our first session on the topic of Engagement, Disengagement, and Managing Conversations. Join us to learn from the experiences of our panelists and to participate in a live Q&A.
Our panelists are:
Jodey Nurse: L. R. Wilson Assistant Professor at the Wilson Institute for Canadian History
Sandra VanderKaay: post-doctoral fellow at CanChild in the School of Rehabilitation Science
NikolPiskuric: Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour (PNB) and School of Interdisciplinary Science (SIS)
Mat Savelli: Undergraduate Chair and Assistant (Teaching) Professor in the Dept of Health, Aging, and Society and the Arts & Science Program
