UNI HIP

HIP in Online Learning Group

Teaching and design strategies for developing high-impact practices (HIPs) in online classes

Facilitators: Gayle Rhineberger (Criminology) & Caran Howard (ODE)

For beginners and seasoned online instructors, this series of round table discussions is meant to encourage on-going conversation about tips, tricks, and best practices in teaching and designing our online classes. Think of us as a reading group without a dedicated book, although most sessions will have some associated resources (e.g., articles, weblinks, videos, etc.) provided by facilitators designed to foster discussion. 

Feel free to join us on days when the topic interests you. There is no obligation to attend all sessions. Simply join when you can or based on the topics that interest you most. 

Sessions will last 45 minutes via Zoom, but can continue up to 1 hour for folks who are able to linger. 

The first two meeting dates/times and topics are as follows:

  • February 9 at 12pm –  "What works for generating high quality discussion in an online environment?"  

  • February 22 at 2pm – "Managing your online workload." 

When you enroll in this group you will indicate what topics & conversations would be most valuable to you, and facilitators will use that information to develop the “curriculum” for subsequent sessions. (The schedule, as well, will take into account the availability of the participants.) Specific session topics will be added to the Google Calendar invitation at least 2 weeks in advance of each meeting. Resources will be attached to the invite, so you can easily find what you need for each session! Additionally, you can request to join the Bb Ultra course, “HIP in Online Learning,” where you can access resources for discussion sessions as well as a warehouse of other online teaching resources uploaded by faculty currently teaching online.
