Participant Idea Exchange 2
You don’t have to choose: Using both synchronous and asynchronous instruction in an online course
Jennifer P. Leszczynski
Eastern Connecticut State University
The COVID-19 pandemic challenged many of us to teach in unfamiliar modalities. One of the choices we were asked to make was whether our online courses would be offered synchronously or asynchronously. During this idea exchange, I would like to discuss my positive experience breaking outside of these two modalities and including both asynchronous and synchronous components to my courses. I designed my courses as “flipped classroom” experiences where the lecture content was asynchronously accessible to students, but we also had weekly ZOOM meetings.
