Proposal Abstract

When faced with the challenge of delivering our University Preparation Chemistry courses differently this Fall, we decided that two instructors are better than one. Together we created 261 instructional videos for two UPrep chemistry courses. Our goal for these videos was to create content that was engaging and meaningful for students. Having two instructors in one video allowed natural conversations to take place rather than having one instructor speak to empty space. The initial feedback from students was positive, they found that the light-hearted manner of the videos made them more enjoyable to watch and did engage them with the content. This presentation will describe how these instructional videos were created while maintaining social distance and reflect on how a challenging situation presented an opportunity that would not have occurred without having to deliver courses online.

Statement

Our presentation will describe how we adapted our lessons to offer our classes outside TRU’s walls.
