Hello everyone!

For those interested in recording and producing your own content on-the-fly, we have some tips for planning and recording here: https://tlhub.stanford.edu/docs/pre-record-videos-to-share-with-your-students/

Jesper’s son has a beautiful view from his room!
Heidi Patel
33:36
Was it just your voice and the slides or do students see your talking head?
Pamela Levine (she/her)
35:03
@Heidi Patel our team has produced videos in both approaches for use in MBA classes. We’ve created audio-only podcasts too!
Becky Lester
39:02
I received a lot of feedback from students that cold-calling is actually good from their perspective. It makes people come prepared, and it helps to keep people engaged - especially because some of the students have been less engaged as the year progresses
Heidi Patel
42:59
Plus a case or just the videos? Curious what students will tolerate as pre-work….
Andrea Corney
43:45
Following on Heidi’s question, wondering if students see videos as a sneaky way of extending class time. Do they resent it?
Jesper Sorensen
44:29
They can watch videos at 1.5x or 2x speed… which they can’t do with a live lecture. :-)
Pamela Levine (she/her)
44:42
Some tips for assigning pre-work is to make sure the pre-work is connected to what happens in class. It should feel like it sets you up to engage in a meaningful way in the class session. If it’s separate content that doesn’t get threaded into class, it will feel more like “extra work.”
Pamela Levine (she/her)
45:04
A number of the MBA Core courses use this model with pre-class videos and the format gets positive evaluations.
Heidi Patel

Does Slack count towards class participation?
Pamela Levine (she/her)
48:28
@Heidi Patel, I can’t answer for Hanno’s approach but I’ve heard of some faculty using a nice “participation quota system” where students can earn participation credit through various means – in-class discussion, online participation. It seems nice because it gives people multiple ways to engage and also aims to keep an equitable amount of participation across students in the class.
Howie Rosen
49:28
Why Slack instead of Canvas forum or another application?
hanno lustig
49:36
@heidi, yes we keep track of participation on slack
Heidi Patel
49:53
@hanno thanks!

@howie: the canvas tool is rather clunky. I think they prefer slack (and they all use it already); great for sharing content

if you teach while sharing slides from an iPad...there's also a very slick Poll EV app that makes switching between slides and Poll EV seamless
Andrea Corney
01:01:34
Sometimes I can see the poll responses on the slide, but the students on Zoom can’t see the responses. Is there a Zoom/PE guide?
Pamela Levine (she/her)
01:02:25
@Andrea Corney I believe you need to release/publish the results to students. There is a set of PollEverywhere guides here: https://support.polleverywhere.com/hc/en-us/categories/1260800697449-Guides

@Becky: Thank you! Did you manage pollEverywhere during class yourself (e.g., locking of polls) or did you ask your CA to do that?
Becky Lester
01:05:27
I did manage the locking myself because they were in my own slides that I was presenting out to the class. I don't know if the CA could have locked, although perhaps if I had given them access to my poll everywhere online account that might be possible.

01:05:44
Thank you!

could the students leave the classroom and use the outdoor seating spaces and then come back?
Alison Brauneis (she/her)
01:07:20
@John - yes this would work well for the in-person students in a hybrid course
Alison Brauneis (she/her)
01:13:28
@John - there are outdoor tables available to be booked that can fit up to 6 people. Your FA can help you reserve them in advance.

Here are a few follow up resources on what you heard today. The Teaching and Learning Hub has a handout on Creating Videos: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1TUIxkXRVRNdTPjhul9uQ0cW-EB7-ieD7wuMklyPAaYQ/edit?ts=60413dad#

We have three upcoming deep dive sessions to go into more detail on videos, polling, and discussion tools. Join us at one or more of the upcoming sessions. 1) Taking your videos beyond the Zoom lecture: https://tlhub.stanford.edu/upcoming-events/march-16-deep-dive-taking-your-course-videos-beyond-the-zoom-lecture/?occurrence=2021-03-16, 2) Polling in the classroom: https://tlhub.stanford.edu/upcoming-events/march-17-deep-dive-polling-in-the-classroom/?occurrence=2021-03-17, and 3) Integrating discussion tools in your course: https://tlhub.stanford.edu/upcoming-events/march-18-deep-dive-integrating-discussion-tools-into-your-course/?occurrence=2021-03-18

TLH can help you identify tools for creating a chat-like experience when you return to the classroom!

In Zoom, “your chat goes with you” – whatever room you’re in is where your chat will appear.
