How are faculty on your campus continuing to adapt to demands for online and blended courses?
APLU has heard from many of our member institutions that across the country, faculty and instructional staff, among many other administrators and staff, are exhausted. Even as face to face courses and other on-campus activities resume, faculty must continue to redesign their courses and think of how to engage their students beyond the classroom.
Our colleagues within the Personalized Learning Consortium at APLU are partnering with the Online Learning Consortium, Achieving the Dream, and the Every Learner Everywhere network to provide a free, virtual professional development opportunity for your faculty and instructional staff in disciplines of writing, math, biology, and chemistry to identify, share, and develop discipline-specific teaching and learning strategies, with a focus on effective and equitable digital learning and teaching with technology.
The Spring 2022 Disciplinary Communities of Practice will consist of three 2-hour synchronous sessions for each discipline, and the sessions will center on the theme of Developing Critical Engagement in and across our Disciplines. In addition to the synchronous sessions, the Communities of Practice host a structured asynchronous platform where participants can continue discussions, share resources, and advance the field’s understanding of how to best implement digital learning in their respective disciplines.
If this is of interest to your campus community, we ask you to please share out the registration link or use the attached PDF to invite your faculty and instructional staff in the disciplines of writing, math, biology, and chemistry who are invested in enhancing their teaching.
