Hindsight from 2020: Student Insights on Engagement in Challenging Instructional Contexts

September 20, 2021 | 12:00pm to 1:00pm

What hindsight might instructors derive from 2020 (when we shifted to online teaching)? Join Institute of Teaching and Learning Faculty Affiliate Brian Raison (OSU Extension and ACEL) and his colleagues from the College of Food, Agricutlural, and Environmental Sciences, to discuss the results of a small qualitative study (n=51) that assessed student perceptions of engagement during that challenging time. Student voices offer insight on how instructors at Ohio State and beyond can improve instructional practice, continuing some levels of online and hybrid instruction in the future. 

Participants will be able to: 

  • Hear directly from students (summaries and quotes) of what specific techniques and approaches students found helpful.
  • Learn what instructors did to increase engagement with materials.
  • Learn what helped students connect to instructors and one another in the online environment.

Additional panelists include:

  • Joy Rumble, CFAES ACEL
  • Caryn Filson, CFAES ACEL
  • Subramanian Kumarappan, CFAES Arts Science Business Tech
  • Daniel Thomas, Ohio State Office of Diversity and Inclusion

There will be a follow up conversation/share session on Monday, Oct. 4, from noon to 1 p.m.
