In this webinar we will offer suggestions for developing and teaching proof-based courses in an online environment (specifically with synchronous delivery using tools such as Zoom, BlueJeans, Big Blue Button, or BlackBoard Collaborate) based on our expertise in running the University of Northern Colorado’s long-standing successful online Master’s degree program for in-service secondary teachers. The webinar will include discussions about course designs led by experienced teachers; discussions of the technical logistics of running a course and program like this; examples of ways to incorporate active learning, student presentations, and small group work in breakout rooms into online classes; and a focus on teaching upper-level and graduate proof based courses. We hope that participants will come away feeling like you can do almost anything you would do in a physical classroom in a synchronous online environment. We are planning follow up meetings for those interested in an effort to build a learning community and to hear back from you about what is working.
Hosts: Nathaniel Miller, Virgil Pierce
