Synchronous Online Classes Micro-Course

Synchronous Online Teaching Micro Course

CEETL is offering an online micro-course focusing on a technical introduction and best practices for teaching online with Zoom.  Micro-courses are short courses, focused on one topic. The format is primarily asynchronous, with an optional Zoom session that will include SF State faculty sharing their own successful teaching strategies. In the Synchronous Online Teaching micro-course, participants will identify best practices around etiquette, privacy, and security in Zoom sessions and consider how those might be applied to their own courses; share strategies for engaging students in Zoom; and examine principles of low bandwidth teaching and resilient course design through the lens of synchronous teaching.

Faculty participants will receive $250 (pre-tax), and GTA participants will receive $110 (pre-tax) for completing the course.  The course is expected to take 3-4 hours to complete, with an optional synchronous Zoom session.

Register for the fall session, which will run from November 9, 2020 to December 7, 2020, with an optional synchronous Zoom session on Friday, November 13, 2020 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.  Please note that space for the course is limited, but we will be hosting a second session in January (dates TBD).
