Aligning Instructional Strategies with Zoom: Summer 2021 (3 week short course)
August 2 – August 22, 2021
You may have used Zoom as the quickest way to record a lecture or try to replicate a synchronous discussion. Now is the time to reflect and identify the instructional objective first and consider the best tool for the job. By the end of this three–week course you will be able to identify and apply instructional strategies that utilize Zoom tools to enhance your course and student learning. You will be provided with Zoom tools (including breakout rooms, recording lectures, polls, and chat) and corresponding effective practice instructional strategies – when and why you might select these practices.
