2021 OKLIS: Online Excellence Showcase: Surviving The Great Pivot of 2020: OU’s Transition to Online Instruction in First-Year Math Classes

Description: In March 2020, the First Year Math Team at OU, like many others in higher education, transitioned from in-person to online instruction. Much of the online instruction and tutoring carried over into the fall 2020 semester. In this presentation, I will focus on the team’s efforts to allow meaningful student engagement and rigorous assessments in online environments while trying to take into account the additional stress both instructors and students were encountering. The presentation will cover lessons learned and what we hope to take away from this experience.

Facilitators: Dr. Deborah Moore-Russo (University of Oklahoma)
