Welcome to My Online Classroom - Deidre Butler
From Morgan Rooney
Welcome to My Online Classroom is a workshop series led by instructors, for instructors, with a specific focus on sharing a wide variety of ideas, strategies, and approaches to teaching online. The sessions will begin with a brief overview from the presenter, and then open for question-and-answer and discussion more broadly. The idea is to create spaces where instructors, regardless of experience, can exchange ideas for teaching online.
This particular session will be led by Deidre Butler of the Religion program in the College of Humanities. An active experimenter in her teaching, Deidre’s teaching innovations include having designed and taught courses with significant community engagement and experiential learning components. She began teaching her first fully online course in January 2020 only to find that she also needed to turn her large lecture course into an online course in the midst of Carleton’s sudden transition online in mid-March this year. In this session, Deidre will speak about lessons learned from prior experiences (face-to-face as well as online), and her own plans for preparing for the likely prospect that we will all be teaching online in the Fall.
