Reimagining Zoom for Teaching

Tuesday, February 23, 2021:  1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

The registration period has closed for this event.


Faculty are invited to these sessions to reimagine what’s possible inside of Zoom for teaching and learning. At a time when many of us are feeling “zoomed out,” these sessions aim to help faculty think about how to bring a sense of fun and excitement to a platform that typically feels stale and artificial. We’ll create space to acknowledge the limitations of Zoom, while reflecting on what we can do and achieve with our students in Zoom. We will engage in informal conversations with the goal of reimagining the kinds of interactions for teaching, learning and connection we can have with our students through Zoom. Participants are invited to critique the parts of Zoom meetings that fatigue us while exploring how we can leverage the features of Zoom in different ways to improve the experiences as hosts and participants and as teachers and students. Come to these sessions prepared to practice, play and ponder about teaching and meeting in Zoom.

This session will take place as a Zoom meeting. Participants will receive the link to join the meeting via their confirmation email.



At the completion of this session:

Conversations may take any number of directions, but possible outcomes may include being able to:

  • Reimagine Zoom as a space for teaching and learning

  • Acknowledge the limitations of Zoom and how the platform structures participation in certain ways

  • Identify how to structure more meaningful and active engagement inside of Zoom
