Best practices in online teaching for BMB classrooms

Brought to you by ASBMB Student Chapters

July 10, 2020

With the unprecedented move to online instruction in the spring of 2020 to help stem to the COVID-19 pandemic, faculty members were required to quickly familiarize themselves with teaching remotely for both lecture and laboratory sections.

The ASBMB and its members provided valuable resources for faculty members but specific examples of high-quality online instruction can still be hard to find, and it can be difficult to get questions answered about the details or subtleties of a project.

This one-day virtual conference addressed this issue by providing direct access to experts on online teaching and presentations and discussions on topics such as synchronous, asynchronous and hybrid teaching and virtual labs and assessment. Plus, Erika Offerdahl of Washington State University gave a keynote address on building a supportive learning culture online.
