Our librarians are available to support faculty members with designing remote classes for the fall. From our experience teaching courses, giving guest lectures, and supporting faculty teaching, we have gained expertise with several tools and teaching techniques. We invite you to please contact your librarian liaison to learn more.
The library is happy to discuss our experience in these areas:
- Creating and editing videos using Panopto, YouTube, Adobe Premiere Pro, and other tools.
- Teaching synchronously on Zoom utilizing breakout rooms, polls, and icebreaker questions.
- Creating asynchronous class sessions that integrate videos with quizzes and exercises.
- Developing quizzes using tools like Canvas that let you write your own questions.
- Locating study aids with questions written for you including CALI lessons and Quimbee.
- Setting up discussion boards using Canvas and guiding in-class discussion in Zoom.
- Leading student collaboration using tools like Google Drive and Mural, an online whiteboard.
We know many of you have been reading more about remote teaching and different online teaching tools. The university has compiled a Remote Teaching and Learning webpage. If you’d like to know whether we have access to something, please ask! The school has a license to popular tools like Poll Everywhere.
Contact your librarian liaison who can connect you with resources or expertise.
