Lightning Talks: Remote Teaching & Learning

Speaker Series 2020

The Remote Teaching & Learning Lightning Talks Summer Series is a reflection and learning forum where Boston University faculty and invited guests identify areas of challenge and opportunity and share strategies for engaging educational experiences in the remote-learning environment. The next Lightning Talk will focus on “Long Block and Large Lecture Classes” on Friday, July 17th from 10:00-11:00am. The faculty panel “will reflect on lessons learned from the Spring semester, discuss synchronous vs. asynchronous instruction, offer guidance to flip the class, and more”.

Continuity of Teaching Resources

As we transition to teaching in an online environment, many instructors have questions about how to adjust their courses, assessment tasks, and pedagogical approaches. These resources have been developed to support instructors in this period of remote teaching. If you have a need for specific resources that are not yet included here, please be in touch with us at

The Center for Teaching & Learning invites applications for its next cohort of Graduate Teaching Consultants. GTCs will support the CTL’s initiatives to promote research-based strategies for effectively engaging a diverse student body by bolstering programs and services for fellow graduate student instructors during the 2020-21 academic year. The application deadline has been extended to August 14.

The BU Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL) and the BU Hub invite you to join us for a special edition Hub & Pub event where faculty can gather in a time of difficulty to share experiences and challenges with remote teaching, including course adjustments, student experiences, grading, and any other topics that participants wish to discuss.
