Supporting Faculty Transitions to Teaching Online: A Discussion for Academic Leaders


Watch a webcast recording where our experts connect with the broader higher education community to share ideas and ask questions amid the COVID-19 crisis.

Overview

Supporting faculty through the transition to remote learning has been a tall order for academic leaders in recent weeks. While most courses have now transitioned successfully online, the need for ongoing training—both on the technology side and the pedagogical side—persists.

Join us for this webcast recording to hear a discussion between your peers and our experts about how they are accounting for ongoing training and support for faculty regarding remote instruction. Erik Nelson, Senior Associate Dean of Academic Affairs and Beth Semaya, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at Columbia University will share their approaches to:

  • Shifting the mindset of faculty who are averse to remote instruction
  • Providing faculty with technology support
  • Academic advising
  • Ongoing pedagogical training for online teaching
  • Communication & messaging out to the faculty during this difficult time

Who should attend?

This training will benefit any academic leader involved in supporting faculty in their transition to teaching online.
