Who "Belongs" in an Online Class?

March 7
1:00 PM — 2:00 PM
CETLS, 199 Chambers Street, Room S510D

“Online Courses Are Harming the Students Who Need the Most Help” is the headline of a January 19, 2018, New York Times article that concludes: “…the evidence is clear. For advanced learners, online classes are a terrific option, but academically challenged students need a classroom with a teacher’s support.

Is your reaction to nod your head in agreement, or raise a hand to object? What can be done for the “students who need the most help”? How does this deficit-framing affect our perceptions and actions when teaching online?

Take a look at the short articles below and come discuss with your colleagues at the Online Teaching Brown Bag on Wednesday, March 7, 1-2 pm in CETLS:
