Fall 2020 Symposium Video Poster Presentations
Loren Rye, UNL Pixel Lab
The popular "speed sessions" where instructors share teaching strategies in short 5-minute presentations have been moved to an online poster presentation format for this fall's symposium. Please browse the 'posters,' watch the video presentations and ask questions, comment, and share your own examples in the comments section on each page. Because these pages are public, the comments will be moderated and poster presenters will respond to inquiries when the comments are posted.

This is a teaching strategy that uses storyboarding to help students understand decision-making processes and how different decisions can be effective or ineffective.
Peer instruction class time is easy to convert to the online format using Zoom Breakout rooms. This works well for converting recitations to an online format for the Spring. Breakout rooms can also be leveraged for think-pair-share in synchronous lectures.
Looking at, discussing, and analyzing works of art helps students in all fields apply concepts they are learning in the classroom, explore multiple perspectives, and think and see critically.
Slides are advancing quickly and automatically which forces speakers to be far more concise and thoughtful than they would be in any other format.

Students are prompted to recall their individual and collective natural talents when developing a team charter that describes how a team plans to work together to accomplish its goal(s) for a class project.
The purpose of this project is to increase the visibility of the daily experiences of disabled students at UNL to push back against attitudes and assumptions that can be oppressive, as well as create a more inviting atmosphere for disabled students.
Students often misjudge the depth of their own learning, believing that they've "got it," when they really don't. Post lecture-quizzes can help students address their illusions of fluency.
How to use Zoom to provide an environment for regularly scheduled “office hours”, and also provide an “open space” where students can ‘meet’ to interact with their classmates.
Use the "muddiest point" technique to gain insight to your students' learning and provide targeted instruction.
The experiential learning log leverages Canvas, a simulation, cases, various technological tools, and pedagogically sound teaching to create a scaleable, flexible, personalized, scaffolded, experiential learning combined with repeated reflection
Use peer instruction to squeeze extra learning out of your exam by making students take it twice. Once on their own (90%), then again with a team (10%).
