Workshop on Teaching Effectively with Zoom

This session is aimed at helping you become more comfortable with the use of Zoom to engage your students and help them learn. It will be led by Dan Levy, Senior Lecturer in Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School and author of the recently published book Teaching Effectively with Zoom. Dan will shared his perspectives based on his own teaching, observations of colleagues across Harvard teaching with Zoom, and interviews with dozens of students. The session will be interactive and you will be invited to share insights from your own experience teaching with Zoom. 

You will be able to learn practices such as:

  1. Why and how to use breakout rooms?
  2. Should you use chat, and if so, how?
  3. How do you build community in a virtual classroom?
  4. How to use anonymous and non-anonymous voting to assess where your students are?
