Back by popular demand, recent SI Happy Hour presenter Daniel Barton returns for the Scientific Teaching in Practice (STiP) Monthly Webinar in June. Expanding on his May 8th short presentation on substitutions for instruction intended for hands-on field experiences, Daniel will present an informative STiP webinar designed to help novice and experienced online course designers alike gain new strategies for use in the Fall.
Abstract: Education in many STEM disciplines relies largely on field-based activities to meet key learning outcomes. Remote teaching of learning outcomes traditionally taught in the field presents unique challenges for students, instructors, and institutions. A survey of faculty conducted during Spring 2020 revealed both substantial reduction of field-based learning outcomes, as well as instructor experience with substituting for traditional field activities and associated equity issues. We will discuss alternative substitutions for traditional field teaching in the context of the results of this survey and our shared experience as instructors that teach field-based activities.
