Teaching a Virtual Workshop
If you missed this week's webinar for Perfecting Your Virtual Workshop, you can see the archived recording here. Members of the OTN community have also collaborated to create this 7 Tips for Hosting Virtual OTN Workshops. While these are aimed at those teaching Textbook Review workshops, the tips presented by myself and my excellent co-presenters are good for teaching in a variety of online formats.
This was a great webinar to be a part of and has me thinking about other applications in this online teaching environment. Much of our professional development comes in the form of webinars and workshops in higher education. This is a great way to learn something new, get a few ideas that we can implement, and leave not feeling overwhelmed or exhausted with information. Yet, when we teach online, we stay far away from this format for sharing information with our students.
So, I am proposing a social experiment in teaching online webinar style. I will be hosting a workshop on how to do just that June 2nd. Mark you calendars! Registration information will be up on the TRAILS website. And if you are teaching and would like to try out this experiment with me, let me know.
