Title: Evidence-Based Strategies for In-Person and Remote Instruction

Abstract: In this seminar, I will describe the implementation and assessment of several evidence-based strategies for both in-person and remote courses. More specifically, I will discuss the creation of virtual, inquiry-guided lab modules that allow for the collection of biomedically-relevant data by students remotely using readily available apps and cell phones. I will describe the design of mini-lectures with embedded pop-up questions and the collection of Muddiest Points to encourage asynchronous student engagement. I will demonstrate the implementation of standards-based grading with reflection to shift traditional, points-based assessment to formative assessment focusing on the mastery of course objectives. Lastly, I will provide strategies for developing community in an online platform by work within and across teams.
