Reading Group: Small Teaching Online

This reading group will meet three times during the semester to discuss the book "Small Teaching Online: Applying Learning Science in Online Classes" by Flower Darby and James Lang. The meetings will focus on the parts of the book as follows --

Meeting 1: Part 1 Designing for Learning

Meeting 2: Part II Teaching Humans

Meeting 3: Motivating Online Students (and Instructors).

The book focuses on strategies for incremental improvement. Our conversations will focus on these strategies and potential or current implementation in your online courses.
