In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, many universities around the world switched to online teaching and remote learning both at scale and at speed. This creates huge challenges for faculty – especially among those who haven’t taught remotely before.

In this free webinar, “Top tips for switching to teaching online,” hosts Tom Chatfield and Elspeth Timmans will address questions such as: What should I save my virtual face-to-face time for? How long does an activity take online compared to in the lab? How do I keep my teaching interactive? These are lessons they learned themselves in turning Chatfield’s face-to-face classes on critical thinking into a SAGE Campus online course.

The hour-long webinar takes place at 10 a.m. ET on Thursday, July 23. Click HERE to register.
