Practice using a new collaborative tool like Padlet. Refer to the “Tools and References” tab for some suggestions and tutorials.
For your own workshop
Set up a video conference meeting. Divide into small groups of three of four participants. During the small group meeting use the collaborative tool that you chose to have a real time discussion and notetaking session on the following topic:
Tips for Synchronous Sessions.
Use these subject headings to guide your discussion, or come up with your own.
- Before the session
- At the beginning of the session
- During the session
- Breakout Rooms
- At the end of the session/How to end the session
When the meeting is over your group will have compiled a list of practices that can help guide you as you prepare for synchronous instruction in an online format. Great work!
