How to Create Meaningful Online Learning Communities

In response to the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic, this 5-day virtual residency will model best practices for undergraduate teaching in the digital world. Graduate student cohorts will interact and learn from university professionals, and participants will also have opportunities to work with each other through interactive sessions and projects. The program will not simply be a series of Zoom meetings, although there will be live events scheduled. Instead, we will construct an online learning environment that features design principles students can directly apply to their teaching experiences specifically for the humanities classroom.

Dates: December 7–11, 2020
