Praxis: The Responsive and Expanding Classroom
Welcome to the Wabash Center's blog series: Praxis: The Responsive and Expanding Classroom
Blog/vlog writers will address such questions as:
- How does one pivot from teaching in a face-to-face classroom to teaching in a fully online classroom environment?
- What issues arise in online classrooms during periods of national and global crisis and how might teachers handle them?
- What has been learned about my students through teaching during crisis and how has this helped me to better meet their learning needs?
- What are important considerations when designing courses and teaching in relation to questions of teaching during periods of crisis?
Instructions for blog writers and vlog makers:
The instructions are focused on written blogs, yet the same principles apply to vlog creation as well.
- Honorarium: Writers will be provided with a $100 honorarium for each blog or vlog post that is published on the Wabash Center website.
- Send blogs or vlogs and questions to: Dr. P. Kimberleigh Jordan, firstname.lastname@example.org.
