As all of higher education considers the potential impact of coronavirus on Fall 2020 and beyond, the Academic Technology and Instructional Design (AT&ID) team at Peabody has partnered with Institute Studies to create a cohort-based summer program for faculty – The Peabody Digital Teaching Collective.
The Collective provides faculty with the tools necessary to transition from in-person teaching to a hybrid model, where the synchronous portion takes place either in-person or via Zoom.
All participants in the Collective receive overviews of online teaching best practices and course design, templates and training for Blackboard and Microsoft Teams, and the range of available and supported technology teaching tools. The Collective is also designed to be responsive and will adapt to faculty questions and concerns throughout the engagement.
Faculty will dedicate 3-4 hours per week over 6 active weeks of participation. Having ultimately spent at least 24 hours over 6 weeks in the Collective, faculty will have gained the skills needed to apply these new tools and knowledge to their teaching catalog prior to the Fall 2020 semester.
As a result of participating in the Collective, faculty will:
Monday, June 15, 2020 through Friday, July 31, 2020
The Collective will be conducted fully online through a combination of Zoom and asynchronous learning tools.
