Throughout the year, we will "put the spotlight" on a member of the UT teaching community so you can share in the innovative uses of technology the faculty bring to the teaching practice.
According to Dr. Stand, developing an online class was quite different from developing a regular class, "In the face-to-face class, sometimes I feel like the students are guiding everything." When developing the online course, the instructor had to be very intentional and specific about online activities that would help students practice and attain the desired skills.
Dr. Strand describes student activities and technology tools used in her online course, such as asyncronous online discussions, student reflections in blogs, listening to audio to practice techniques of staying calm in the midst of a conflict, pair-share live online sessions, role-playing video recordings, self- and peer assessment, and more.
