Teaching with Zoom

Teaching with Zoom is a two-session online workshop that focuses on developing skills for teaching interactively online using Zoom, our web-conferencing platform. In the first session, you will experience and discuss design and teaching strategies to create active learning environments when teaching in Zoom. You will learn about staying organized as an online moderator and supporting students with minor Zoom technical challenges. You will also practice using tools and moderator controls in preparation to facilitate a mini-lesson in the second session. In the second session, you will facilitate a ten-minute mini lesson, receive feedback from your peers, and learn from others’ examples
