Speaker: Sarah Arrington, Instructional Technology Consultant/eLearning Specialist at Appalachian State University

Description from the Quality Matters website:

“Demands on today’s faculty in the classroom seem to be constantly growing. No longer are we expected to just “teach our content”, but we also need to make sure our students are work-force ready, engaged, supported, and motivated. Oh wait, you need to teach your course online or in a hy-flex model and your class size has doubled? Don’t worry, you got this and I’ll show you how. In this session the goal is to show you that teaching can still be fun while we try to meet the ever changing needs and expectations of our students. We’ll go on a journey of how a freshman-level majors biology course (100+ students) was transformed from from a typical lecture-based course to an engaging, student-led learning environment. Using Team-Based Learning™ student-led learning during class not only increased, but a sense of community and fostered deeper learning outside of class was built. The basic tenets of TBL and how they have been adapted for synchronous online instruction will be discussed. We will compare how tools within an LMS, as well as a proprietary software, InteDashboard™, can be used to conduct TBL activities online — looking at both the pros and cons of both. As participants in this workshop, you will get to experience online TBL for yourself.”
