Going all online - teaching practice, learning design and assessment
Besides all its challenges, the current SARS-CoV2 pandemics has motivated many institutions in higher education to rethink the potential of online and blended teaching and learning. Going all online has much more to offer than transferring in-class lectures to a virtual environment and many opportunities for student-centered teaching have emerged. The discipline of mathematics is particularly suited to deliver their modules in an online fashion.
This 2-day workshop will bring together scholars of teaching and learning with lecturers of mathematics, statistics and machine learning. The former will contribute with insight from state-of-the-art research on teaching in higher education. The latter will demonstrate examples of best practice and lessons learned from a switch of face-to-face teaching/learning
to blended and online delivery.
The event is organized by the School of Mathematical Sciences (University College Cork). All sessions will be online (details shared after registration closer to the event). It will be open to staff, postdocs, and students (PhD, postgraduate, undergraduate). It part of the National Forum Seminar Series 2020/2021.
Day 1: Thursday, 18.3.
Day 1 will be centered around the implementation of e-learning (key note 1) and examples of teaching and learning in the context of mathematics/machine learning (key note 2).
Time: 8:45 - 17:00
Day 2: Friday, 19.3.
Day 2 will continue these two strains and bring them together by discussion of novel concepts of online feedback (key note 3).
Time: 9:00 - 13:00
|9:00 - 9:50||Naomi Winstone||Key note 3: Learning-focused e-assessment and feedback processes|
|9:50 - 10:20||Shirin Moghaddam||Online Teaching; Challenges and Advantages|

There will be a standardized National Forum Seminar Series - Participant Feedback survey. Details will be communicated during the event.
This workshop is supported by the National Form for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education in the framework of the National Seminar Series 2020/21.
The National Seminar Series gives those working in higher education the opportunity to connect with colleagues and to focus on shared interests in both the research and practice of teaching and learning enhancement. The series also creates opportunities to hear from national and international experts in different areas of teaching and learning.
