Can you use (have you used) these kinds of prompts to get students to interact with each other in breakout rooms?
Jim Roberts
46:33
91 % yes -- Remember this is a self-selected audience.
Carrie Baldwin-SoRelle

I like using “what’s your theme song of the week”
David Casagrande
46:57
I used a poll and followed it up with mindfulness meditation
Jill Schneider
47:02
Every month I have a breakout in which the students share their challenges and at least one case in which they overcame the challenge
Wynn Meyer

I sometimes asked questions about current events, like for students’ thoughts about Valentine’s Day or the Super Bowl.
Greg Reihman

I often loosely connect the check in to the day’s content—often with a question first about an experience that relates to the themes— and then about their level of understanding/readiness to discuss the day’s reading.

Random group assignment seems easier online than in person. Also I think students are braver in the chat in big classes (esp when they can DM me) than they would be in a large auditorium. What to do in person?
Amanda Caton
01:07:34
I have to break off but wanted to thank you all for a great session and looking forward to seeing the recording of the rest of the session.
Jill Schneider
01:07:36
I’ve done groups of 4 and 2 in Neville in endocrinology classes of 80 or so
Jill Schneider
01:09:12
the trick to groups in large class rooms are to start by teaching the students the secret signal for “quiet and eyes forward” (the signals used by Occupy groups)
Henry Odi
01:10:52
Let students know at the beginning class that it's safe and valuable for them to speak up and continue to reinforce it through out the semester. Henry
Bruce Whitehouse

Bobby, on behalf of the teachers of those big "gen-ed" courses, we WANT you to connect with the course and we WANT the content to matter to you.
Bobby Siegfried
01:16:17
Thank you Bruce!
Bobby Siegfried

Is there any data from students who DID feel still connected even given the level of distance we all felt during the past year?
Wynn Meyer
01:16:47
(And IIRC the research suggests you learn the content better if you do more than “get in get out” during the class….)

Great work, Jasmine. Thanks

great presentation, Jasmine!

Some classroom layouts (e.g. tiered) seem to discourage students from getting to know one another and collaborating with one another.
Greg Reihman
01:40:14
That’s a fair observation, Michelle—I’ve found the small groups *can* work even in tiers—but it’s hard. Sometimes just pairs or groups of three, with clear instructions and a plan for what you do when you return to ‘the big group’

This is a helpful addition to a mask: https://www.fixthemask.com/

Some of us have an accent which makes the masking even more tricky.

Thanks!!
