"The Role of Gender Power in Online Course Discussions: How to Design Online Learning Experiences that Prevent the Silencing of Women's Voices" presented by Dr. Virginia Byrne on Tuesday, June 23rd, 11-12pm (online).
This is a great opportunity about an important topic, especially as online teaching will be a part of our lives for the foreseeable future. Registration is required--please register here to receive information on accessing the workshop that day.
About the session: When teaching and learning online, having meaningful class conversations can become more challenging – particularly when students are asked to share their ideas, opinions, or disagreements. Research has shown that this is especially true for undergraduate women in online courses. In this hands-on workshop, we will discuss research and practical guides to better understand how face-to-face gender power concerns manifest in online learning environments. The facilitator will model online teaching and facilitation tactics and provide a toolkit of resources for online teaching.
This workshop is co-sponsored by the Women's Center, Center for Women in Technology (CWIT) and the Faculty Development Center.
