Resources for Spring Quarter

Over the summer, Teaching and Learning Hub asked you what practices from online teaching you intended to bring to the in-person classroom. We’ve incorporated your insights, and those we learned during Autumn Quarter, into the resources here on our website. As you prepare for and begin the Spring Quarter, we recommend reviewing the following resources:

Recording of December 8 faculty panel discussion: Reconnecting to the Classroom. In this faculty panel recording, Matt Abrahams, Dikla Carmel-Hurwitz, and Jungho Choi share their experiences returning to the in-person classroom during the Autumn Quarter. Hear their perspectives, lessons learned, and strategies they incorporated from teaching online, and their advice for transitioning back to the in-person classroom.

Updated Teaching Playbook. We’ve edited and updated our popular GSB Teaching Playbook to help you navigate the return to in-person teaching. The Playbook is a great resource with many tips and practices for developing your Spring Quarter teaching strategy. You can also view our Teaching Resource page to navigate all of our articles, videos, and available resources.

Use polling in the classroom. Find out how to effectively implement polling in your classroom using tools already available to you and learn about Becky Lester’s and Glenn Kramon’s successful uses of polls in their GSB courses.

Leverage Slack to foster deeper conversations online. Even with in-person classes, you can still use Slack to engage students in deeper conversations and help build community in your classroom. Learn how.

Foster an equitable and inclusive learning environment. Designing your course and teaching strategy with equity and inclusion in mind is an important first step. Inevitably there will be difficult topics and discussions on sensitive topics along the way. Learn more about strategies for addressing these situations, both planned and unplanned, when they come up.

Connect with students. Many of the above articles will help you make more meaningful connections with and between students. Our article on Community-building Activities offers additional ideas, and our Tips and Demos page features strategies used by your colleagues.

Supplement your in-person course with online components. Your course may still benefit from online components even though the class sessions will be held in person. Reference our resources on Zoom instructions for remote guest speakers and holding office hours in Zoom, and watch Kate Casey’s approach to creating more structure in her course.
