How to Use Zoom in the New (Blended) Normal: Models for Student Inclusion and Engagement
As plans ramp up for students and faculty to gradually return to campus this fall and winter, educators will face a new normal.
Some pre-pandemic, face-to-face classes will still be taught fully online. Some will offer students a mix of face-to-face and online study, while others will be largely face-to-face with an online component.
Zoom will have a significant role to play in all these scenarios, but remote students may feel alienated and disengaged from their in-class peers unless preventive steps are taken.
Key Takeaways
Tailored to instructors, instructional designers and academic administrators, this engaging webinar shares seven models for Zoom-supported teaching and learning. Host Dr. Ron Owston helps participants understand how to ensure all students are fully included and engaged in these models:
1. Fully synchronous
2. Blended synchronous and asynchronous
3. Flex blend: Students alternate between attending face-to-face and online according to predetermined schedules
4. HyFlex: Students freely choose whether to attend face-to-face or synchronously
5. Traditional blend: Mainly face-to-face with an integrated online component
6. Flipped: Content delivered online, students attend in small, in-person groups for guided/tutorial work
7. Face-to-face with Zoom breakout discussion/work groups
