The educational superheroes of 2020 are those undergraduate and graduate faculty who’ve had to transition from the classroom to the online environment in record time. It’s not been easy, but what an awesome learning experience! In this interactive webinar, we will share what student-centered learning is and how to achieve it online.

We’ll identify best practices for assessments and learning activities for online courses, and share some of our favorite tools to help faculty. Participants are encouraged to come with questions and share their experiences in transitioning their residential courses to a remote environment.
