Upcoming Workshop: An Introduction to Online and Hybrid Teaching

Posted by on Monday, January 11, 2021 in Events.

Are you looking for ideas for how to engage your students this spring? This workshop will provide a structured introduction to teaching in online and hybrid settings. Participants will learn principles and practices for supporting student learning asynchronously (via Brightspace and other tools) and synchronously (via Zoom).

This workshop will be particularly useful to Vanderbilt instructors who did not teach during the fall, but is open to any Vanderbilt instructor.

The workshop has two components:

  • An asynchronous component, presented in Brightspace, that shares key principles for online and hybrid teaching and models examples of how to engage students asynchronously, and
  • A synchronous component, facilitated on Zoom, that shares ideas and models examples of pedagogies for synchronous instruction in an online or hybrid course.

The asynchronous component will take 2-3 hours and is essential preparation for the 1.5 hour synchronous session.

We’re offering the synchronous session twice in January. Register for the Zoom session of your choice using the links below. Please note that each Zoom session is limited to 25 participants. About a week before the Zoom session you choose, you will receive a link to the online materials and an invitation to the Zoom session.

  • Wednesday, January 13th, 10am to 11:30am – Register
  • Friday, January 15th, 12pm to 1:30pm – Register

A Zoom link is included in the confirmation email. Questions? Contact Derek Bruff at

Open to Vanderbilt Faculty, Graduate Students, & Postdocs
