Abstract:

EDE 758 (Intensive Internship Seminar) was offered to 17 MATH UP Childhood Education graduate candidates as a hybrid, co-taught class during Spring Semester, 2013. Dur­ing some weeks the class met face-to- face for one hour; other weeks, the class held two-hour sessions. For four ses­sions, the class was entirely online.
The focus of this presentation will be the four online ses­sions. During these sessions, the presenters experimented with synchronous virtual teaching. They expanded their co-teaching team to three and included Educational Technol­ogy Assistant Naliza Sadek in the planning and implementa­tion of the Blackboard Collaborate classes. The presenters will talk about how they designed each synchronous ses­sion, include some of the challenges experienced, and offer recommendations for other instructors who want to add synchronous online teaching to their repertoires.
