Distance Learning Workshop for STEM Faculty

NSF Awards: 1723404

2019 (see original presentation & discussion)

Undergraduate, Graduate

The Distance Learning Workshop was held on April 6-7, 2018 at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV).  We recruited STEM faculty and administrators within UNLV, as well as other universities, especially those in the western public school area and minority-serving institutions. The workshop aimed to provide lessons learned from both faculty teaching in this area and students who have learned through this modality and to present the participants with examples of successful implementation of distance learning curricula. 

A pre-assessment was completed by participants upon registration for the workshop.  The survey data were utilized to assess the needs of participants and to develop the final workshop materials.  The data were also provided to workshop speakers so they could tailor their lecture and learning activities accordingly. Speakers were to present comprehensive coverage of various tools used to develop integrated distance learning in STEM curricula, especially engineering and the sciences. 

In addition to lecture presentations, the workshop had several collaborative activities, panel discussions, and guided learning activities to develop actual courses they could take back to their own institutions.  Participants were given one-on-one instruction, workshop presenters, leaders, and others to guide their development and answer questions that they may have. 

Upon completion of the workshop, participants were given a link to complete the post-workshop survey prior to their departure from the presentation venue.  Participants were also given a certificate of completion to acknowledge their time and participation in the workshop. A six-month post workshop survey was also conducted.
