Imaginative, Strategic, Sustainable: A Call for an Online Learning Future Designed for Students' Lived Experiences
Date: Monday, March 28th
Time: 12:30 PM to 1:45 PM
Session Modality: Virtual
Lead Presenter: Jenae Cohn (California State University-Sacramento)
Track: N/A
Location: Zoom Room 6
Session Duration: 1hr 15min
Brief Abstract:

The impact of widespread remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic has exposed a lasting need for educators to assess the use of online learning technologies in their teaching and design practice critically. Yet starting conversations about critical and strategic technology usage in online learning can be a challenge to untangle from the now-inseparable pairing of remote learning experiences during the pandemic with trauma. As we move forward, we can recognize the trauma experienced during the pandemic, while also naming sustainable approaches that will continue to be care-oriented. Building this vision for online learning will require: 1. breaking down the long-existing false binary between "online" and "in-person" learning experiences, 2. designing activities that are increasingly attentive to students' embodied experiences of being online, and 3. empowering students to engage in reflective feedback about their experiences continuously. To engage with these three components of a sustainable and imaginative future for online learning, we will look to our past before engaging with our future. Participants will be invited to name and share how they imagine a future for online learning that is aligned with students' full lived experiences of pursuing an education. In the process, we'll consider instructional approaches that designers, instructors, and technologists can take to build courses that are clear, navigable, resilient, and accessible.
 

Prior to the start of the keynote, we will recognize our 2022 OLC Innovate Award winners.  Please also join us Tuesday, March 29 from 10:15am-11:15am US Central Daylight Time Zone (CDT) for our OLC & MERLOT Awards Gala & Social, where we will celebrate our award winners' achievements and have the opportunity to ask them questions.

The abrupt switch to online during the pandemic represented challenges to our students, faculty --and also to our staff on whom we rely to support the success of our students. The complexity imposed on by the pandemic has led, at some institutions, to loss of faculty and/ or staff, with some leaving the industry altogether. This adds to the challenges of maintaining a quality experience for students. In this workshop participants share their experiences and lessons learned, as well as explore the application of concepts from the fields of counseling and leadership to support staff success and satisfaction.

Changes accelerated by the pandemic have included revision of approaches, for hybrid online - on-campus programs, of student orientation and other on-boarding experiences intended to support student success in the first semester and beyond. As multiple-day, full-day face-to-face on-boarding experiences become less common, one approach is to selectively integrate orientation activities into enrollment activities to improve preparedness and reduce the stress of transition as students start. In this workshop participants explore the challenges and opportunities associated with closer collaboration between enrollment and academic teams, and share their experiences and tips related to collaborations.

Three-pronged VoiceThread Discussion Strategy: Providing Rigor, Differentiation, and Sense of Community During the Pandemic
Date: Thursday, March 31st
Time: 10:15 AM to 11:00 AM
Conference Session: Concurrent Session 2
Session Modality: Virtual
Lead Presenter: Fatemeh Mardi (University of Missouri-Saint Louis)
Track: Research: Designs, Methods, and Findings
Location: Zoom Room 1
Session Duration: 45min
Brief Abstract:

In an online graduate course, VoiceThread was utilized to reflect on course readings. The strategy used is made up of digital powerups (Thurston, 2019), a guided self-connection section, and expressing what they learned from their peers.
A qualitative content analysis of student reflections using this strategy supports these claims: 1) The digital powerup strategy provided an opportunity for rigor and differentiation. 2) The guided approach of the ‘connect to self’ section balanced and complemented the open-ended nature of the digital powerup section. 3) Structured peer takeaways led to a sense of community. 4) The graduate students preferred the three-pronged discussion strategy to other models they have used before.

The transformation of our educational landscape over the past two years has been unprecedented.

Fostering Student Writing and 21st Century Skills Through Innovative Peer Learning Platform
Date: Tuesday, April 12th
Time: 3:45 PM to 4:30 PM
Conference Session: Concurrent Session 3
Session Modality: Onsite
Lead Presenter: Jonathan Olshock (Community Portal Self Registration Account)
Track: Instructional Technologies and Tools

Session Duration: 45min
Brief Abstract:

Peer review is a critical component of the writing process. However, it can be difficult to scale and implement online. Modern advancements have improved the traditional process to ensure learning outcomes improve and scoring is bias-free. In this session, we demonstrate an innovative, empirically-backed peer assessment methodology. Its scaffolded feedback process engages students in a multipeer review process, lowering the cost of instruction and enhancing skills of collaboration, communication, and critical thinking.
