In the spring of 2020, many of us had to quickly adjust our teaching from a face-to-face setting to an online environment without time to reflect on how to do that well. In this session, Lauren Hays will share her tips for teaching online.
She will share specific examples of how to engage the audience, how to give students opportunities to practice searching, and how to discuss content.
As a result of this program, attendees will:
• Discover tips for moving face-to-face content online
• Identify ways they can engage the audience
• Brainstorm how they can lead discussions
• Determine the best strategies for them to give students the opportunities to practice searching
