As instructors, a quick shift to online teaching means a myriad of concerns, from technical to pedagogical. However, little attention has been spent helping students shift to becoming better online learners. This webinar will outline considerations for helping students switch to online learning modalities and construct productive ways to learn in these unusual circumstances. Our discussion will cover how to think about student needs, how to anticipate issues, how to be clear about expectations, and where to find resources.
