HOW TO TEACH ONLINE

In response to the recent move by many US colleges and universities in closing campuses, Convergences Theatre Collective (CTC) has created a free guide to support teachers transitioning from an in-person to an online learning environment. From our founding, CTC has utilized remote technology for online collaboration as well as a tool to support rehearsals with collaborators in different geographic areas. We also host training and workshops online. We are happy to share our experience with you.

Please feel free to share, adopt, and adapt the guide to fit your teaching practices. Simply click the button below to access the 
Online Learning & Teaching: A Guide.

WEBINARS & TRAININGS

In addition to the guide, CTC offered 2 free webinars to provide additional support for teachers making this transition. Below is information about each as well as the recorded videos of the webinars:

FEEDBACK FROM THE WEBINAR

"Your webinar is already modeling a meaningful ‘community’ can be inspired online - and experiencing this is already inspiring a kind of calm."

 

“Thank you so much! A great way to begin this process.”

 

"I appreciate the transparent creative process with these limitations. New possibilities will emerge. How can we continue to share what we are discovering?"

 

"Thank you so much for today. This has been tremendously helpful! "  

 

"Really appreciate the design of the webinar. The awareness of tone and process, pace, and the willingness to explore [rather than] present."

TRAINING FOR FACULTY

Online Learning & Teaching for Faculty is a training for professors and instructors of all disciplines. The training will focus on Curriculum Design, Planning, & Facilitation. Our approach is informed by Design Thinking, Flipped Classroom Methodologies, Sprilar Learning Theory, Contemplative Education, and creative practices. The training utilizes multiple modalities of online learning as a way for professors and instructors to experience what it feels like to learn online while simultaneously transitioning their teaching practices from an in-person to an online environment with guided support at every step. The training team is co-lead by Jeremy Williams and Jennifer Edwards and includes additional mentors for small groups and one-on-one support.  
 

Our basic training package is a simple 2-step process that can happen over 5 days.
