Ruth S Phillips
38:07
student student interactions re crucial. Cooperative learning —> i assign roles like facilitator, spokesperson, scribe, etc
Shiu-Kai Chin
38:13
Students who know each other by name and more than their program of study. They are able to solve problems together, ask questions of one another, and teach each other.
Peggy Takach
38:29
having them still keep some level of ownership to their learning. They can lead a discussion forum.
Nikki
38:46
Allow each other to be heard
Francine D'Amico
38:52
Equal sharing of ideas and opinions without judgment so they can learn from each other.
Gail Hoffman
39:03
Have students ask questions of each other
Peggy Takach
39:04
peer-to-peer evaluations for various assignments. Have them give direct feedback to each other.
Carolyn Hedges

Building learning relationships together - not just faces, but names and ideas. Working together to understand
Annie
39:07
Sharing research, sharing information about an assignment, solving a problem posed in class, defining a goal they want to reach (in group session)
loredanalanzani
39:14
group work where all members participate as equal partners (vs. ``stars’’ and silent members). Students get virtually together to practice on HW and prepare for tests.
hongmartel
39:15
Design course with student presentations
Jim Watts
39:17
Lead students to see the value for them of hearing other students' views--something that is not obvious to many of them.
Janet Brown
39:19
Discussion boards, breakout rooms, displaying HW and asking for helpful comments. Zooming with the class but also with maybe small groups at a time.
Gail Hoffman
39:24
What are they curious about?
Francine D'Amico
39:24
One method for this is "interview" format, then ask interviewer to share "fun fact" about interviewee with group
Caitlin Smith
39:28
Making sure the discussion is building and growing off of what they are all saying, rather than each student just separately responding to the original prompt.
Laurel Willingham-McLain
39:46
Jim Watts - I was going to say the same thing.
Francine D'Amico
40:36
Ask a student to moderate, another to caption?
Ruth S Phillips
40:41
Cooperative learning — > assign roles like facilitator, spokesperson, scribe, etc

loredanalanzani
41:10
What is ``caption’’?
Francine D'Amico
42:37
In Collaborate if you designate a moderator they become one of the 5 "talking heads"
Jim Watts
43:22
Zoom recordings provide an automatic transcript.
Anne C Bellows
43:30
why would someone want to caption?
Martha A Diede
44:03
Captioning is important for people who have challenges with hearing as well as for those who have challenges with bandwith.
Francine D'Amico
44:47
The transcript is a record of the written chat. It does not record the spoken words
Jim Watts
45:27
No, ZOOM recordings provide a transcript of the spoken words, too.
Francine D'Amico
45:39
Students whose first language isn't English also benefit from captioning
Michael Morrison
46:06
@Jim - Zoom can provide a transcript for the recordings, but you need to turn this feature on
Francine D'Amico
47:33
Yes please
Nikki
47:33
Yes, practice
Francine D'Amico
48:27
Student can summarize key points of content
Gail Hoffman
48:31
sharing a short personal narrative
hongmartel

Francine D'Amico
49:02
Yes and students can ask questions related to the content
Carolyn Hedges
49:04
yes and student can share with another students about what they know
Nikki
49:23

Anne C Bellows
49:30
Sorry, I'
loredanalanzani
49:32
yes and, perfect student does not miss any class; stays up-to-date with lecture notes; keeps up with HW and other assignments; is comfortable discussion content with classmates.
Catherine Nock
49:33
yes and students can demonstrate something they've learned or read or thought about in a visual way
Francine D'Amico

Laurel Willingham-McLain
49:43

Peggy Takach
49:49
Yes, and. after the class is done, mid-week present a new prompt in the discussion board such as....explain the main idea behind.....how does what we began to discuss in clas...
Francine D'Amico
49:54
Tes and chat needs spell check
Nikki
50:07
Yes, and they remember it the next class!
Janet Brown
51:04
I wish in real life that people would use the yes and way of speaking with each other. This is a good opportunity to teach good manners and listening skills.
hongmartel
52:21
Because Zoom is not good for simultaneous speaking
Ruth S Phillips
54:33
Students are very comfortable text chatting. More so than speaking out loud
Francine D'Amico
55:08
Students who are working from someplace where others are working (family, roommates) may not be comfortable vocalizing (time zone differences may affect this) and some students are uncomfortable vocalizing or unable to do so
Jim Watts
57:04
@Francine @Ruth -- Good points. Thanks.
Laurel Willingham-McLain
58:20
the pace of the chat suggests to me that this "yes, and" is ideal for brainstorming ideas, and then taking it to the discussion board for longer reflections.
Martha A Diede
58:54
@Laurel - yes, and it makes for some fascinating directions in those boards for deeper discussions
Laurel Willingham-McLain
59:45
To be honest - even though I typed "yes and," I hadn't read all the above. But the "yes" could include a rephrasing/echoing of something specific that was said above along with @name.
Shiu-Kai Chin
01:00:26
Raise hand in class or cyberspace. Encourage them to ask questions when they are confused. Remind them that this is practice standing up (constructively) to authority. It is necessary for developing their professional voice.
Joe Downing
01:00:48
Amen Shiu-Kai!
Laurel Willingham-McLain
01:03:16
@Michael - that slowing down to read the chat and think about responses also gives the students some thinking/catch up time.
Peggy Takach
01:04:12
reflection - use of the journal. I like to utilize the component in Blackboard. I have each student complete reflections throughout the semester. These are led with questions for them to complete. Example: What do you plan to do with what you learned? What do you want to learn next?
Annie
01:04:30
I have had some International students who are reticent to turn on cameras. I also had students in summer session I who were at home with siblings around and no Isolated place to work from.
Peggy Takach
01:04:54
@Annie - I like your idea of them listing questions that they still have and then reviewing it with them in the next class.
Prasant Ghosh
01:04:55
I stop frequently and encourage student to ask question. I use both and let student to decide oral or chat. Chat helps Professional students connecting from their work.
hongmartel
01:05:02
Perhaps first few classes turn camera on often
hongmartel
01:05:21
Virtual background
Moira (she/her) McDermott
01:05:57
requires even more cpu
Ruth S Phillips
01:06:42
On the first day of class we all selected virtual backgrounds together. I introduced the activity by admitting I was running class from inside a bathroom
Francine D'Amico
01:07:00
SO how do I get a "green screen" so virtual background will work for me?
Martha A Diede
01:07:07
@Ruth - that's a fantastic idea!
Ruth S Phillips
01:07:44
it was fun. Community building
Moira (she/her) McDermott
01:07:55
@Francine buy green fabric, improvise a frame, clamps, screen
Annie
01:08:32
Can’t get virtual background on my Mac…I get a message that tells me my Mac OS needs to be 10.13 or higher.
hongmartel
01:08:51
@Michael how do I get a photo to display when camera off?
Laurel Willingham-McLain
01:11:09
It could be creative for students midsemester to create/select a virtual background that evokes a key idea in the course.
Francine D'Amico
01:11:23
I like the idea of different places for each class - where in the world is Professor today?!
Martha A Diede
01:11:25
To display a photo when the camera is off, sign into zoom when you're not in a session. You can select your profile and change the image
Francine D'Amico
01:11:53
Looks like DNA strand
Ruth S Phillips
01:12:01
Yes I am DNA : )
Caitlin Smith
01:12:21
They can make cards to lift up too - “agree” “disagree” “love” “I have a question”. I had a classmate make really beautiful and fun ones in the spring!
Laurel Willingham-McLain
01:12:49
@Caitlin - fun.
Anne C Bellows
01:13:00
same for me
Moira (she/her) McDermott
01:13:37
I think I only have the picture if I am logged in to zoom.
Nikki
01:13:41
Does it matter how you open Zoom? App vs browser?
Annie
01:13:57
I just went to my zoom account, and my photo is up on my profile, but it’s not here in this meeting…only a black screen
Moira (she/her) McDermott
01:14:48
also works if you go to zoom app and sign in
Jim Watts
01:15:18
But how do I get to this meeting from the single signon?
Annie
01:15:48
Where is SSO sign in?
Jim Watts
01:16:19
sounds too complicated for the students (or me), most of the time
Martha A Diede
01:16:21
SSO is Zoom.syracuseuniversity.com
Francine D'Amico
01:18:51
Sounds like it might be time for me to retire...
Ruth S Phillips
01:20:14
online teaching is overwhelming but it does get less so as you go along. We are already GOOD at teaching … its just another adjustment
Martha A Diede
01:21:10
Hong Zeng is back with a profile pic!
Ruth S Phillips
01:21:10
My students have started reminding me how to do stuff as I am messing it up
Hong Zeng Martel
01:21:22
@Martha — worked, thank you!!
Anne C Bellows
01:23:57
Is it possible for TAs to sit in on these training sessions. It would be helpful for me to talk with my TA and prepare as a team--or for a group of faculty and TAs in my program to discuss as a group.
Martha A Diede
01:24:13
Of course, Anne.
Francine D'Amico
01:25:29
We used MS Teams for office hours/academic advising. Students can schedule during your office hours in Orange Success, then you can send a Teams or Zoom invitation
Ping Zhang
01:26:30
Martha, where can we find the document?
Martha A Diede
01:26:40

Ping Zhang
01:26:48
Thank you!
Prasant Ghosh
01:26:59
Thank you.
Hong Martel
01:27:06
Thank you Michael and Martha, very helpful!
Anne C Bellows
01:27:08
Are there other trainings this week?
Jim Watts
01:27:15
Thanks, Martha and Michael!
Ruth S Phillips
01:27:21
thank you!
Francine D'Amico
01:27:25
DITTO!
