Classical soprano Dr. Christina Haldane will discuss her experiences with designing a new course for our online environment. As a performer, she has relied on an in-person perspective in the past, alongside her course design, to foster student engagement when working face-to-face in her academic courses. She'll be sharing her insights on how a shift to the online environment can be viewed as an opportunity to explore new ways to increase student engagement, such as an organized course flow, bite-sized video segments, specialized software for experiential learning and participation strategies.
