A second virtual town hall focusing on adaptive teaching for the fall semester will be hosted for faculty at 11 a.m. CT Wednesday, June 24.
Derek Bruff, principal senior lecturer of mathematics and director of the Center for Teaching, will present on active teaching and learning in hybrid and physically distanced classrooms for the fall semester. A discussion will follow with Bruff, Mavis Schorn, professor of nursing and senior associate dean for academics in the School of Nursing, and André Christie-Mizell, professor of sociology and dean of undergraduate education in the College of Arts and Science. Schorn and Christie-Mizell co-chair the Education Continuity Subcommittee of the University Continuity Working Group. More information about increased resources to support faculty this fall can be found on the adaptive learning webpage.
Questions can be submitted in advance or during the event at vu.edu/livequestions. Stevenson Professor of Chemistry and Faculty Senate Chair John McLean will moderate a question and answer session with Bruff, Christie-Mizell and Schorn during the town hall.
To support faculty, the university has increased resources including enhancing and expanding classroom IT and Center for Teaching resources. Faculty will have access to instructional design experts through iDesign, which will be available soon. More information can be found on the adaptive learning webpage.
