Featured instructor: Roland Vegso
During the pivot to online education in Spring 2020, Professor Roland Vegso converted his Literary and Critical Theory course from face-to-face to an online course. He prioritized small organizational features that ended up making a big difference for his students. The following video tour of his course addresses five core ideas: removing barriers to student learning, establishing instructor presence, supporting community, and using technology intentionally and effectively.
Presented in January 2021, this workshop began by presenting data collected from the students that visited CAST this fall to help faculty and staff better understand the challenges that students were facing. The instructional designers then offered practical solutions for faculty to help better mitigate those challenges.
