Part 5. Recordings of Class Sessions and Course Content
One aspect of online learning appreciated by many students is the recorded lectures created by instructors and posted to Canvas. When returning to in-person teaching, instructors may want to continue to provide some recorded lectures rather than using valuable class time to lecture on the material. In this way instructors could “flip” their classes by requiring students to view a recorded lecture before class. Class time could then be spent engaging students in activities or discussion to enhance and deepen their learning. The recorded lectures would also be available for students as they review content to prepare for exams, providing further learning benefit.
This quick tip has been drawn from “Improved student engagement in higher education’s next normal,” by Ed Glantz, Chris Gamrat, Lisa Lenze, and Jeffrey Bardzell, in the Educause Review, Tuesday, March 16, 2021.
If you want to share your own ideas for what you will keep in your teaching when you head back to the in-person classroom, fill out our form and add your idea to our collection (to appear on our website in late April).
1.My students did the grammar work at home as part of the home work with a follow up activity before the class. I will continue to do this.
2.I also did a weekly vocabulary quiz ( not graded) and this helped students and motivated as there was no stress of grade (will keep this)
3. I plan on offering the conversation table in Hy-brid format.
I noticed that students did well particularly when the quiz was not graded.
