Planning your online course

According to DeLozier & Rhodes (2017), flipped classroom is “(t)he practice of assigning lectures outside of class and devoting class time to a variety of learning activities”. Many secondary schools and universities in Hong Kong have adopted the flipped classroom model, which focuses on enhancing students' self-learning skills by having them study course material prior to class so that teachers can focus on group discussion and knowledge consolidation during class. This website from HKU displays a range of classes that have adopted the flipped classroom approach.

Inclusive Use of Canvas Features and Apps

Effective approaches to teaching and classroom climate are founded on the same principles that drive diversity and inclusion: equal access and opportunity for all students to thrive, honest dialogue about important issues, and protocols for managing difficult, sudden, and emotional moments. Instructors can consider racial and socioeconomic awareness, checking for implicit bias, and developing inclusive classrooms, teaching strategies, and diversity statements. (Yale)

This website from Yale has shown some of the tips for teaching staff about the inclusive use of Canvas features and apps
