@MemorialU @AcadiaU @UNB @DalhousieU @UPEI @MSVU_Halifax @stfxuniversity

1/
1) Record & watch yourself teaching📽️Consider:
- lighting, sound, video quality
- font size
- background distractions (pets, clutter)
- body language / movement that doesn't translate well to camera
2) Sharing your screen? 🖥️
- mirror your learner's environment
- disable notifications and/or set up an separate account on your laptop for teaching
- consider your background image & desktop files
- increase the size/visibility of your mouse pointer (bit.ly/2TTqqqc)

Since all the cool kids are doing it, here are my suggestions for faculty finding themselves required to pivot to online biological anthropology courses this week. (Thread!)

#anthropology #pedagogy #online #COVID2019 #coronavirus
Tricks to putting (particularly introductory) courses online = 1) split your lectures into short videos using Camtasia/Zoom/etc.,
2) link to others' video resources (e.g., @SciShow), and
3) ask your students to do their own research/homework/lab projects.
I'd recommend making sure everything you do is *asynchronous*. You don't know when/how/if students have broadband access. You don't know their home responsibilities (caregiving duties, etc.). Best not to assume everyone can call in/zoom/skype for a synchronous meeting.

I started teaching composition online in 2008. Here are some things I've learned over the years (a thread). #onlinelearning #digped #teamrhetoric #WPAlife
There are REASONS why online courses have higher DWF (drop/withdraw/fail) rates. One huge reason is that these courses can feel impersonal. Another is a lack of feeling accountable. Anything we as instructors can do to the improve the affective element of the course is critical.
I make many choices in my online courses to humanize the student experience. One key element of my #pedagogy is to respond to students' work via screencasting. Screencasting allows students to hear my voice and see my screen as I am grading their papers/digital projects.

Thank you to all @BhamLawStudents @bhamlaw @artsatbham colleagues who came along to our launch of the #LawTalkBLS Legal Comms exhibition of student work 2019/20. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Here’s some pictures from the event and, most importantly, the student POWs 1/x
The #LawTalkBLS module allows @BhamLawStudents to choose an area of law they want to research, develop a message from that research to communicate to an audience of their choice and then produce a ‘piece of work’ (POW) in a format to allow best communication of the same 2/x
Work exhibited this year includes interpretative dance, slam poem, blog, Legal Design, infographic, video, case note, street law presentation & research memorandum. Actual POW’s & student reflections on the same #LegalEd #CreativePedagogies #AuthenticAssessment 3/x

@jnlamstudies Forum, “#Shakespeare and #Black America” before the 2020 print publication if you have access to the
@CambridgeCore platform. Just in time for our #RaceB4Race discussions on appropriation! Buckle up--Tweetstorm a' comin' #LitPOC #MedievalTwitter
2/ These essays are short and, not just accessible, but actually enjoyable (IMHO). I’m always tweeting stuff for you to check out, but this time you don’t have to listen to just me. (Although y'all most def should listen to me) + #ShakeRace #RaceB4Race #LitPOC
3/ Look at this referee comment. Now you KNOW you need to read these if you are interested in #appropriation #pedagogy #theater #Activism #archives #BlackHistory! Thanks generous and insightful reviewer!! #ShakeRace #RaceB4Race #LitPOC #ShaxCultApp

I’ve taken the challenge @MrsSpalding - a look through a year 10 student’s #english exercise book. If you came into my classroom and picked up a book... what would you see? #teamenglish #lifeofateacher #pedagogy
Daily low stakes quizzing of knowledge taken from the knowledge organisers. All marked by the students - demonstrating feedback in every lesson.
You’ll see that making mistakes and getting things wrong is ok. It’s how we learn. We mark accurately, correct the error and get it right next time around.

Currently in a Mechanisms Network of Expertise (MNoE) workshop/session at #SIRC2019 The room is packed (standing room only) so hopefully my live-tweeting will help folks that couldn't fit.
@ImplementCollab also has a webinar on this topic. More info at …plementationresearchcollaboration.org/past-webinars/ (but no link to the webinar that I could find)
@ImplementCollab Mechanisms help us understand the causal process by which an implementation strategy functions. Ex: provider knowledge deficit is a "determinant", education is a strategy, and adoption is the outcome. A mechanism is what explains how education leads to adoption #SIRC2019

Today, I will try my hand at live tweeting insights from "A #Home of One's Own", a two-day #researchworkshop on socially & economically #marginalised women's experiences of and negotiations with #genderinequalities in #informalurbanhousing in India.
This workshop has been organised by #JadavpurUniversity (School of Women's Studies), #RabindraBharathiUniversity (Centre for Women's Studies) and #Parichiti, a women's organisation. All three are research partners on a #GCRF project funded by @GoldsmithsUoL.
Since Oct 2018, I have collaborated with Dr. Henrike Donner, who is leading it, to develop #researchcollaborations with #educational and #development organisations in India to implement a pilot study on #genderurbanhousing. This workshop marks the end of the first phase.

Day 2. Still pre-conference. I must confess that while taking notes today, I sincerely wondered to myself: how will I condense this much information in a way that its essence is not lost? So much was said; so much needs to be done. Oya grab your seat. @LagosStudies #lsa2019
The first panel was the Gender and Academy II. Panelists were Yetunde Zaid, Lynn Schler, Bamidele Wale-Oshinowo, Oyeronke Oyewunmi, Mojubaolu Olufunke Okome (@mojubaolu) and Taibat Lawanson (@TaibatLawanson) The first question shows that mentorship comes in various forms.
Who was your first mentor?:

"My first mentor was my Ph.D. supervisor. He was good @ treating students equally&that gave everyone a sense of confidence when starting out with their career. It distilled any competition that we might have&developed a sense of community.” Schler
