    Description: Hosted by Innovative Educators - "Recognizing the uncertainty of Fall 2020, faculty must prepare for intentional fluid teaching so that they can adapt to provide a useful learning experience regardless of the instructional mode. Fluid teaching rests on the assumption that the instructional mode is unknown--online, face-to-face (hybrid, starting online, moving to face-to-face) starting face-to-face moving to online, or some other combination. As such, effective instruction relies on a detailed course map that identifies learning objectives and assessments. From this framework, teaching is designed around instructional modules with primary and secondary strategies for content delivery, engagement, and feedback. In this webinar, we will explore concrete strategies for creating an effective, adaptable fluid teaching plan."
