Hybrid, Hy-Flex, Hy-Stress: Reframing the First Weeks of Teaching (Online Roundtable)

Mon, 31 Aug 2020 1:15 PM - 2:30 PM

Extending from a popular Teaching Toolbox, this forum will create space for participants to learn about, practice, and share teaching strategies amidst an uncertain, chaotic fall semester. While the focus will be on holding a brave space for earnest dialogue among participants, we will also explore specific cognitive reframing strategies, attend to our pedagogical strengths, and discover evidence-informed approaches, like “slow teaching,” known to decrease instructor and student stress.
