Simple Teaching Strategies for Fun, Community-rich Zoom Classes

March 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm PST

In this interactive session, Jason Kalchik, English faculty member at San Diego Mesa College, will showcase and model equitable facilitation strategies that encourage active, authentic engagement in synchronous, online learning. With a focus on fostering a learning community, sharing agency, and grounding instruction in student strengths and experiences, we’ll work through various exercises and share and discuss techniques that have and haven’t worked in each of our own classes.

In this workshop, you will:
1. Explore live online facilitation techniques designed to unsettle traditional power dynamics within the college course.
2. Interrogate the concept of “participation” in order to reconsider and refine practices designed to encourage active engagement.
3. Evaluate inclusive pedagogical strategies that support the success of English students in our post-AB 705 landscape.
