School of Continuing and Professional Studies Associate Professor Charlotte Matthews has been teaching online for years and shares a few ways that you can build community in your synchronous online courses.
As many faculty are discovering, the online medium—to say nothing of the times we live in—has required us to reimagine how we teach, what we teach, and, in some cases, even why we teach. Community-engaged faculty also have had to reenvision relationships with their students and their community partners in ways that can prove both extraordinarily challenging and surprisingly rewarding. This learning community offers a space for dialogue and brainstorming around these issues.
Created in response to COVID-19, this video series documents the unique experiences of UVA faculty who taught community-engaged courses in Spring 2020. Faculty share their reactions to teaching during the pandemic, as well as their reflections on the challenges, outcomes, and unexpected opportunities of transitioning their courses online midway through the semester due to COVID-19. They discuss lessons learned to offer insight and inspiration to other instructors who may find themselves in similar situations, or who are grappling with what it means to be a community-engaged teacher in our time of trauma.

For courses that depend on an embodied or experiential approach to learning, moving to a virtual format can prove extraordinarily challenging. This webinar was an open dialogue and brainstorming session around transitioning courses from an integrated in-person experience to an online medium. The discussion was particularly useful for faculty teaching community-engaged courses, performance-based courses, and courses that require a high level of interactivity in the arts and humanities.
UVA Acts Artistic Director and Program Manager Cortney McEniry put together resources to help instructors—particularly in drama, creative drama, and applied theatre—who need to facilitate embodied or experiential learning work online.

Dr. Randy Stoecker, a professor in the Department of Community and Environmental Sociology at the University of Wisconsin, gave this virtual talk on March 16, 2021. The CTE co-hosted this event as part of UVA Public Service Week. Read full talk description.
While many of the ways you’ve assessed students’ learning in the past will continue to work (and work well) in an online environment, you might have to get creative for some things. This webinar helped participants think through ways to reimagine assessment practices by focusing on what matters most. Session slides.
Active engagement with course material and ideas is essential for learning, but in the transition to teaching online, some of the ways we have fostered engagement face to face may no longer be available. This webinar helped participants think about a range of options for reimagining student engagement in both synchronous and asynchronous online environments. Session slides.
This session focused on practical strategies for ending your classes with equity as the essential value in mind. Participants discussed ways to work together to advocate for those students most impacted as we move into the exam and evaluation period. Session slides.
The CTE created these videos for our virtual Teaching as a Graduate Student 2020 workshop.
