The complexities of teaching online provide additional challenges for teachers of large classes, from managing the virtual classroom and trying to engage large numbers of students, to designing assessment, providing feedback and marking efficiently for so many students. Given the diversity of contexts and cohorts, there’s no ‘one right way’ to do this. However, with the support and insights of teaching colleagues across UQ, there are rich experiences and lessons learned that can be shared to benefit teachers and learners in this challenging learning environment.   

In this session, we shine a light on the practicalities, challenges, experiences and ‘solutions’ linked to teaching large classes online. Whether you’re teaching 150 or 1,500 students, we invite you to join our cross-faculty presenters – from the very experienced teachers of large classes to those whose first experience of teaching large classes was this year – to share lessons learned.  

This event will be facilitated by Jessica Leonard, Sophie Plunkett and Aliisa Mylonas.
