Consistency, Clarity, and Convenience: Three C’s to increase the number of A’s and B’s when Teaching Large Lecture Sections of General Chemistry Remotely

Session Overview

This video was part of the July 2020 REMOTE: The Connected Faculty Summit

Many faculty have learned a great deal in abruptly moving seated lecture courses to remote teaching and learning in the middle of the spring 2020 semester. Here, we will focus on lessons learned in setting up a remote course structure with the intention of maximizing student engagement, equity, and flexibility, while maintaining academic rigor and integrity.
