Theme: Managing the LfA Experience

The Lightning Talks speaker event 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 in-person environment. The speaker series, co-hosted by Digital Learning & Innovation and The Center for Teaching & Learning, is open to BU faculty, staff, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars.

Fall 2020 Speaker Series: Teaching and learning in LfA modalities brought abut new challenges for faculty and students, with many faculty needing to re-imagine their approaches to class activities and assignments. During the fall 2020, mid-semester review, faculty presenters shared experiences and highlighted ways they adjusted their teaching for hybrid and remote classes.

I liked hearing from a variety of people in different fields and at different levels, e.g. post-docs to professors. Good practical tips and realistic views on the things that are working and the things we are all struggling with. – Managing the LfA Experience Lightning Talk Attendee
