OVERVIEW: The shift to remote education has presented instructors with many challenges. In engineering, one of the biggest challenges is shifting the experiential learning from hands-on laboratories to remote settings. Institutions with spring/summer terms have been faced with this challenge for months now, and undoubtedly have first-hand experience that might be valuable to others.
In this free webinar series we will take a ‘case study approach’, and look behind the curtain of the experiences from one institution – the University of Alberta.
By the end of this session, participants will:
- Understand the most pressing challenges, successful solutions, and unexpected surprises faced by instructors teaching lab courses remotely
- Have the opportunity to gather insight on current pressing questions
- Connect with others who teach similar courses, or face similar challenges
Please note: this session is not intended to ‘present the correct way to teach labs online’. Instead, it will offer perspectives from instructors who now have some experience running labs remotely. We invite you to bring an open mind, as we try and learn as a community.
