Conversations with Colleagues: April

April 18 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Conversations with Colleagues

Topic: Regular and Substantive Interaction in Distance Education

The U.S. Education Department has set guidelines for distanced learning and has recently offered new guidance for what kinds of instructor-student interactions will count as regular and substantive (RSI). In our time together, we will discuss how our campuses are handling the guidelines and guidance, address questions, and together brainstorm innovative practices for engaging with students in online learning.

Facilitated by Lisa Bergin and Kristine Gyolai, Minneapolis College

  • Welcome (5 minutes)
  • Introduction to the topic (5 minutes)
  • Participants sharing local campus perspectives on meeting regular and substantive interaction (RSI) guidelines (20 minutes)
  • Collecting best practices that go beyond meeting the minimal guidelines (25 minutes)
  • Closing (5 minutes)

Conversations with Colleagues is a monthly platform for colleagues across Minnesota State to gather remotely to share ideas and bring questions (along with your lunch). These monthly gatherings will provide you opportunity to engage in rich conversation in both small and large groups and networking with colleagues across the state! You will also be able to add your name to a list of faculty and staff who are willing to share expertise and areas of interest with others. We have amazing innovations and work being done across the state and the goal of Conversations with Colleagues is to foster a network of support for faculty and staff across Minnesota State.

Conversations with Colleagues is hosted by faculty and staff from the Minnesota State Faculty Development Committee.
