TEE remote learning consultations

For a limited time, TEE is offering remote learning consultations to all faculty teaching in the Bridges curriculum. A TEE Instructional Designer will meet with you to pinpoint the competencies you’ll need to teach remotely, and will tell you more about he remote learning workshops you see listed below, which will help you design and facilitate pedagogically-sound, high-quality remote learning experiences.

Sign up for a remote learning consultation.

TEE remote learning workshops

This online archive of workshops will help you develop technical and teaching skills so you can design and facilitate pedagogically-sound, high-quality remote learning experiences. Workshop resources include recordings, PowerPoint slides, and guides. You can also use the workshop competency checklists to assess, practice, and develop your skills to reach full competency.

1. Zoom Essentials: Use critical Zoom tools to prepare, run, and humanize your Zoom meetings and classes

Build the foundation for facilitating remote activities through Zoom, including skills to prepare for a meeting, manage participant roles, and share content. You’ll also learn concrete ways to “humanize” your classes by incorporating strategies that enhance social connection and help build a more effective and empathetic learning environment.

        2. Zoom Polls and Breakouts: Utilize Poll Everywhere, Zoom polls, and breakout rooms to promote interaction and engagement

        Learn how to facilitate interaction, promote engagement, gauge participant knowledge, and quickly obtain feedback from participants by harnessing the power of Zoom’s polling tool and Poll Everywhere polls. Also learn how to set up and manage breakout rooms in your Zoom meetings and class sessions to facilitate small group interaction and instruction.

        3. Humanizing Remote Learning in Zoom: Incorporate strategies that promote social connection and an empathetic learning environment 

        Come learn concrete ways to “humanize” your classes by incorporating strategies that enhance social connection and help build a more effective and empathetic learning environment. This is the second foundational workshop that will equip you for remote teaching and for TEE’s more advanced workshops. Use the competency checklist to assess your skill level, then practice existing skills—or develop new skills to reach full competency.

        4. Strategies for Facilitating Remote Small Groups: Expand your small group facilitation skills by improving engagement and inclusion

        Expand your remote facilitation skills by identifying strategies that promote engagement and inclusion in small group sessions and learn ways to apply them in your teaching. Use the competency checklist to assess your skill level, then practice existing skills—or develop new skills to reach full competency.

        5. Zoom Breakout Rooms: Utilize breakout rooms to facilitate small group interaction and instruction

        Learn how to set up and manage breakout rooms in your Zoom meetings and class sessions to facilitate small group interaction and instruction. Use the competency checklist to assess your skill level, then practice existing skills—or develop new skills to reach full competency.

        6. Collaborating Virtually--Annotating, Whiteboarding, and Managing Screen Space: Use collaborative tools like annotation and whiteboards, manage screen space, and utilize interactive tools

        Boost remote collaboration with tools such as annotation, whiteboards, and cloud-based collaboration platforms. Practice managing screen space and interacting through shared content, chat windows, participant video, and more. Use the competency checklist to assess your skill level, then practice existing skills—or develop new skills to reach full competency.

        7. Zoom Polling & Poll Everywhere: Utilize Poll Everywhere and Zoom polls to get feedback and promote interaction and engagement

        Learn how to facilitate interaction, promote engagement, gauge participant knowledge, and quickly obtain feedback from participants by harnessing the power of Zoom’s polling tool and Poll Everywhere polls. Use the competency checklist to assess your skill level, then practice existing skills—or develop new skills to reach full competency.

        Zoom for remote learning

        Zoom is used in most of the remote learning experiences. Before using Zoom, we encourage you to:
