This workshop by AUC’s Center for Learning and Teaching (CLT) is organized for their own faculty, but has been generously opened up to all interested AMICAL participants.
The workshop will introduce you to Liberating Structures, a collection of alternative and easy strategies to engage and energize your students, many of which can be done very well online using some of Zoom’s features such as breakout rooms.
The workshop is intended for those engaged in teaching or faculty development. The focus will be on making classes and orientation/immersion week sessions engaging. However, Liberating Structures can also be used in other contexts, such as organising meetings or workshops.
The duration is 2 hours. To gain the most benefit, make sure you free up the time to fully immerse yourself. The event is highly interactive, so come prepared to participate with audio at least, though audio + video is even better. Due to the participatory nature of this event, it will not be recorded.
The following Liberating Structures will be covered: Spiral journal, WiseFish (a combination of Wise Crowds and User Experience Fishbowl), and Conversation Cafe. There will be a reflection at the end.
The session will be facilitated by Maha Bali (AUC) and Hoda Mostafa (AUC).
Because this event was designed for AUC faculty, there are a few required registration questions that don’t apply to non-AUC participants. Fill them in as best you can, and put “0” for “Faculty ID number”. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
The platform will be Zoom, which may require installation in advance of the event. Review our online event guidelines to ensure you are setup to participate with a microphone and/or web cam.
