During this intensive workshop, you will experience high-engagement techniques of working alone and in groups in a synchronous manner, using Zoom and breakout rooms. All of these techniques (Liberating Structures) can be used for making your online classes engaging, to organise students’ group work, and to achieve learning results. Liberating Structures can also be used for organising departmental meetings and faculty development workshops. This session is open to all AMICAL members.
This session is intended for those engaged in teaching or faculty development. The highly interactive activities you will experience are suited to make your classes and orientation/immersion week sessions engaging; and will help students create a sense of community.
The duration of the workshop is 2 hours. Please make sure to free this time to fully immerse in the workshop, and gain a maximum of experience from the Liberating Structures and the collaboration with the other participants.
This 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 likely be covered: Impromptu Networking, Troika, and Conversation Cafe. A few of the material from an earlier workshop will also be used.
The session will be co-facilitated by Maha Bali (AUC), Angelina Popova (AUCA), and Jasmina Najjar (AUB).
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.
