Presented by Dr. James W. Brown, “The Godfather of Online Science”
August 21, 2020 at 10:15 a.m.
This free presentation will review the current state of online laboratory science course delivery and suggest future directions in the rapidly changing environment. The Coronavirus Pandemic has heightened awareness of the important contributions that online courses offer as colleges and universities confront an unprecedented challenge. Lessons learned and best practices will be explored, and effective ways to reach beyond the “traditional” student to promote and celebrate diverse communities will be discussed. Students who may have previously been excluded by the constraints of time, distance, family, or work obligations can now be a vital part of the classroom and contribute rich, robust life experience and cultural perspectives to courses while widening their career options.
*The presentation is part of the Online Learning Consortium (OLC)’s Ideate Labs for Online STEM: Innovating STEM Education 2020 seminar, held from August 19-21, 2020.
