The Zoom classroom is similar to a face-to-face setting in that it allows for a synchronous gathering in which students and instructors can see and speak to each other in real time. While tried and true strategies from face-to-face settings can apply in Zoom, there are also unique challenges in the online synchronous environment. This session explores challenges that arise in Zoom related to classroom behaviours, and invites discussion around how best to engage students in the Zoom classroom.
At the end of this workshop, participants will:
- Identify challenges and solutions to facilitating synchronous sessions
- Select strategies that can be modified to cultivate active, engaged, and respectful learning in your Zoom teaching and learning context
