Accessibility of courses.
Maria Goodrich
30:26
Strategies for active learning have to be planned for with more care and intention (harder to implement on the fly)
Heather Oertel
30:27
Engagement
Faculty Development Center FDC
30:44
Moving online, I very much missed the cues I would get from student body language and faces; they were just hard to get on Zoom.
Jenny Clark
31:06
I coordinate the CATE Lab and work with students with disabilities. Online education has been wonderful for many students but there have been some access issues.
Holly Groszko (she/her)
31:08
I've never taught in-person, it's hard to engage students online though and communication needs to be frequent and very specific/clear
Alexandra Kubiak
31:17
Student need to understand and take personal responsibility to incorporate learning strategies into their own study time.
Holly Groszko (she/her)
32:05
Online is very much self-directed so requires them to plan and be more self-disciplined
Faculty Development Center FDC
33:43
Online takes more time to set up the details of student - I feel both more prepared for class in some ways (because winging it is harder) and yet miss some of the flexibility I had when I could wing it.
John Bruenger
33:55
Technical issues can become more pronounced and very disruptive.
Alexandra Kubiak
34:05
Yes, agreed. Good point about teachers needing and wanting to be more aware now more than ever about learning differences and how to best serve those students.
Stephanie Wladkowski
34:16
Multi-tasking became more apparent
Kat Naish, she/her, DRC
35:02
Great points, Jenny!
Michael McVey
35:11
Yes, excellet point.
Michael McVey
39:29
For those late arriving - we have a collaborative note page...

Stephanie Wladkowski
39:45
Love this idea
Holly Groszko (she/her)
41:02
time management
Sarah Deward
41:12
Organization and self-direction
Stephanie Wladkowski
41:36
Knowing what works for organization and what does not— re-assessing throughout the semester
Larisa Martinez
41:50
I was in that class! I now use Google calendar AND paper and it helps me to make sure I’m not missing things
Larisa Martinez
42:03
😄
Faculty Development Center FDC
42:08
Ability to keep track of multiple things at the same time.
Jenny Clark
42:17
It helps if the student can practice not becoming distracted during the lecture. Some apps are helpful for not allowing the user to "wander off".
Alexandra Kubiak
42:20
I am a success coach at the Holman Success Center - planning and organization has become a huge point of interest for students (which makes me happy!). ONL learning has forced many students to recognize the gaps in their planning system.
Stephanie Peck
42:23
Ability to know or learn electronic use and management including word, zoom, canvas, Google calendar...
Holly Groszko (she/her)
42:30
I actually have a PowerPoint with "helpful tips" for students that suggests using a calendar, making a space for work, etc.
Stephanie Wladkowski
42:47
Having time to THINK, the benefit of a draft, and thinking more…
Heather Oertel
43:48
Accountability is important with keeping track of how assignments are progressing…I refer many students to Holman!
Stephanie Wladkowski
44:22
Where to find things in Canvas— every professor organizes their information differently, which can be frustrating for students.
Jenny Clark
44:31
I've found for students with disabilities especially, it helps greatly if there is a practice test online.
Larisa Martinez
45:13
I agree with that, Stephanie! I have several classes that have things stored in different places and it’s very confusing sometimes
Kat Naish, she/her, DRC
45:20
That's helpful, thank you!
Holly Groszko (she/her)
46:04
I tried to use MindTap - homework platform for Cengage but the students have had so much trouble figuring out how it works so I'm going to discontinue that. Also I have had to be really clear about what can and cannot be done on a mobile device
Heather Oertel
46:55
Also important to know how menu features may be different depending on how the student is accessing the class (laptop vs phone or iPad, etc)
Jenny Clark
47:17
some students may "miss" items in live streaming
Holly Groszko (she/her)
47:21
connectivity issues
Jenny Clark
47:34
yes! Connectivity issues is dire
Stephanie Wladkowski
47:34
Wi-fi
Alexandra Kubiak
47:35
One thing - students feel a lot more pressure to "get it" the first time - can easily discourage students.
Larisa Martinez
48:10
Processing difficulties
Holly Groszko (she/her)
48:19
I imagine it would be more difficult to focus with all the distractions
Jenny Clark
48:59
Great advice to record! Very important for accessibility!
Jenny Clark
50:03
recording it also makes it much easier to caption for those that benefit from that
Stephanie Wladkowski
50:14
Are chapter markers available in Zoom? Or is this an individual editing task?
Michael McVey
50:27
Not available in Zoom.
Michael McVey
50:31
Notability.
Michael McVey
50:36
in one appl
Stephanie Wladkowski
50:39
Thank you.

Maria Goodrich
51:46
I have Camtasia - learning it now
Michael McVey
52:01
Camtasia!!!!
Holly Groszko (she/her)
52:04
I use Camtasia
Maria Goodrich
52:22
In the early days Zoom was the easiest way to get something quick
Alexandra Kubiak
52:36
Not just willing - but it can easily become a distraction from teaching!
Holly Groszko (she/her)
52:44
Teams can be used to record too
Maria Goodrich
53:13
I have definitely resisted editing and tried to keep videos short enough to do in one take
Sarah Deward
53:16
loom.com
Michael McVey
53:51
@Maria - short is best for sure
Michael McVey
54:39
Statistics and Modern Dance. Check out YouTube videos on THAT topic.
Stephanie Wladkowski
56:23
Zoom has closed captioning and transcripts available, but have to be established prior to the session
Alexandra Kubiak
57:02
I have also experienced getting really excited about ALL the options for alternative modalities - pick a few; don't overdo it! (I know we all know this, but just something I really struggled with - I noticed that it was overwhelming for students and/or difficult to really see engagement/learning impacts from chosen tools)
Faculty Development Center FDC
57:06
Years and years ago, Michael McVey coached me on making short (~6-8 minutes) podcasts to share with class - no longer. I have been thrilled with that approach.
Sarah Deward
57:41
@Alexandra— YES. THIS.
Stephanie Wladkowski
58:21
Yes @Alexandra. And students were overwhelmed with their profs all trying different modalities and having to figure it all out
Jenny Clark
58:28
As someone in charge of hiring note takers for those with disabilities. I LOVE the idea of assigning note-takers!
Alexandra Kubiak
58:41
Assign note-takers - what a great way to utilize a GA/TA/SI if you have one!
Maria Goodrich
58:41
@Alexandra - yes! (the cognitive load of students navigating all the different tools in a single class, and among different classes, can be substantial!)
Jenny Clark
59:06
Assigning note takers is also a very collaborative approach
Stephanie Wladkowski
59:25
Sense of ownership as a group
Alexandra Kubiak
01:00:23
Such a great idea @Jenny!
Alexandra Kubiak
01:01:11
Helps give opportunity to the instructor to be seen as an equal - also a "lifelong learner." ;0)
Kat Naish, she/her, DRC
01:01:56
YES!
Holly Groszko (she/her)
01:02:27
This is a great tool to check color contrast https://webaim.org/resources/contrastchecker/
Larisa Martinez
01:06:17
Thank you for this!^
Faculty Development Center FDC
01:08:46
The Faculty Development Center is happy to help facilitate this process.
Larisa Martinez
01:09:22
I really love that Sarah, that type of process would have been really beneficial for me this last semester! I wish more teachers were like that
Stephanie Wladkowski
01:09:29
What would need to happen for EMU to support an institutional license for Camtasia?
Kat Naish, she/her, DRC
01:10:08
Oh my gosh! I love this so much!!!!!
Holly Groszko (she/her)
01:10:08
I LOVE this!!
Michael McVey
01:10:52
@Stephanie - great idea - ask Bill Jones
Alexandra Kubiak
01:12:39
This is awesome! It's so fascinating how having a visual to image yourself in a collaborative space can influence collaboration. Loved the Gather example.
Holly Groszko (she/her)
01:13:51
@Michael what was the tool you used for that picture?
Michael McVey
01:14:13
@Holly - can't recall right now -= it's free Remove BG or something like that.
Michael McVey
01:14:20
Google Drawing
Maria Goodrich
01:15:01
I was too selfish about keeping up my handwritten notes today to contribute to the shared doc
Alexandra Kubiak
01:15:19
I think having this, then time at the end to add your notes or highlights would be less intimidating!
Larisa Martinez
01:15:30
Haha same! I was very much “in the moment” trying to absorb everything
Alexandra Kubiak
01:17:48
Great, important question.
Kat Naish, she/her, DRC
01:19:04
Check out some UDL recordings from the DRC too. https://www.emich.edu/drc/faculty/faculty-development-series.php
Alexandra Kubiak
01:19:11
I worked at HFCC - we were required to complete online training tools with other faculty before going into each semester. I think this helped a lot with us all being onboard with the same overall aims (at least).
Holly Groszko (she/her)
01:19:33
Is this something that we could take to the Union to try and work on getting?
Michael McVey
01:19:35
Pl Lanzon at HFCC has been very supportive.
Jenny Clark
01:20:41
Absolutely wonderful presentation Michael and Sarah!
Alexandra Kubiak
01:21:16
Agreed - I appreciate this opportunity to learn and discuss with you all!
Stephanie Wladkowski
01:22:16
Thank you!
Alexandra Kubiak
01:22:41
Thank you!
Holly Groszko (she/her)
01:22:43
This was great, thanks everyone!
