This workshop prepares humanities faculty to teach their classes effectively and imaginatively. To this end, the workshop has two goals. First, it surveys the major lessons learned during the emergency shift to online instruction during the coronavirus pandemic. Second, it offers specific, concrete strategies for moving forward as colleges and universities return to some measure of instructional normality.

The strategies in this workshop will address the following pedagogical areas: course design and management, best practices in the use of Zoom, discussion dynamics, and assignment design.

Workshop participants will have ample opportunity to discuss their own courses and receive feedback. The workshop is suitable for both faculty who are relatively new to online teaching as well as those who are more experienced online instructors.

All modalities of online instruction will be considered: fully asynchronous, hybrid, and synchronous.

The course facilitators will also provide a concise Works Cited on current research and reflection on teaching the humanities.
