Faculty Forum - November 20, 2020
From Andy Jones
Our November 2020 Faculty Forum focused on a topic that builds on last month’s theme of promoting student engagement: Remotely Teaching with Collaborative Documents.
Faculty Forums are informal, discovery-based
conversations that present the thoughts of faculty from across the
disciplines on the topic of the month.
Participants in this event included the CEE Education Specialist Dr. Patricia Turner. Patricia has 23 years of teaching experience, including faculty positions at UC San Diego and Harvard’s Institute for English Language Programs. Dr. Andy Jones of ATS and the University Writing Program talked about ways that he creates community in Google Docs and Zoom chat. Dr. Grace Delmolino from the Department of French and Italian, and other faculty participants, shared relevant perspectives. Please also check out the Delmolino SITT 2020 talk where she shares the benefits of Google Docs for students engaging with faculty feedback: “Feedback Loops for Time-Efficient Grading and Better Student Writing.”
ATS Senior Instructional Designers Dr. Margaret Merrill and Mark Wilson were on standby to offer their perspectives and to answer questions about campus-supported technologies for virtual collaboration.
