It asks where unexpected benefits showed themselves among the forced necessity of emergency remote teaching, and it encourages faculty, administrators, and academic and student support colleagues to continue collaborating to remove barriers, improve access, and update methods and tools.
Faculty share experiences of developing and implementing active, interactive, and adaptive introductory physics courses. The design allows students to work at their own pace, choosing support items presented to them via the adaptive feature of the course, and explore concepts through simulations with activities.
In this session we address key learnings about instructional practices and student learning outcomes, usage of digital tools and impact on faculty time, and share key challenges we must continue to confront as well as the strategies faculty and institutions are deploying to better ensure that every learner everywhere is able to learn.
