Labster: Dashboard and Analytics

Join us for a deeper dive into the Labster dashboards and analytics. These user-friendly tools provide faculty with information about student progress in the simulations/virtual labs, which can be used to adjust instruction in small yet impactful ways. Such information also can help faculty make the most of precious synchronous or face-to-face time spent with students. Labster research has shown that the use of these tools, in conjunction with putting the information to use in supporting students, makes a real difference in student success.

Strategies for Engagement, Collaboration, and Interaction Online

Online learning can be an isolating experience for students if they don't feel a sense of community and belonging, or have opportunities to interact with their peers and their instructor. Keeping students engaged is an essential component of effective online teaching and student success. Join us to discuss strategies for building community, creating an inclusive classroom climate, and increasing interactions to promote student engagement. 

Infusing Inclusion into Your Course

How can equity and inclusion be infused throughout all courses we teach? What can inclusive pedagogy look like online and face-to-face in STEM, social sciences, the humanities, and the arts? Using the Fearless Teaching Framework as a guide, we will discuss ways to make your course content more inclusive of diverse scholarship, your teaching practices invite new voices into discussions, assessments that work for everyone, and the classroom climate more responsive to the student body at UMD. The Zoom link to join will be sent out to registrants before the event.

Difficult Dialogues

Lively discussions can energize a course, and it's important to set the stage for success. Come to this session to learn how to manage "hot topic" classroom conversations. This session will be useful for instructors who are planning to include sensitive course content, acknowledge to current events, and/or respond to unplanned student comments. Please note: we are adapting this interactive online workshop to focus more explicity around talking about race in the classroom.
