Listening but getting my son set for distance learning … be fully ‘on’ in a few.

Taylor Bloedon From Humboldt. Having a few tech issues

Same … lots of assessment concerns/questions
Mary Bennett

Same at Fresno State - lots of questions about when or if to use Respondus as well

CP SLO - we’ve “slowed down” after this summer’s wild ride, and we currently have one Intro to Online Teaching & Learning workshop (4-week) going on, with several people finishing up Q1 and others signed up for Q2. I’m revising our Quality Online Training Academy (QOTA) to create an on-campus review system for courses to prepare them for the CSU review (would love to hear how others are doing this as well!) and our biggest challenge is our lab courses - particularly in our Ag school. There is no virtual cow program that can do what our campus cows do…
Beverly Bondad-Brown (LA)

Agree on assessment - concerns that exam questions appear on Chegg in real time during the exam...

Such a great point, Anne!

Yes, required use of cameras
Anne Soon Choi, CSUDH
35:40
No one should require camera use

Bb Ally has helped us fill some of those gaps, but those chasms are definitely still there
Mark Rodriguez Sacramento

Why so, faculty ask, it’s seemingly impossible to conduct the course in faculty’ minds without required…

CSULB is creating a scenario based framework that organizes the CSU recommendations, requirements and guidelines.

Chico: we began our QLT workshop series last week. We are offering 5 workshops designed around the Core 24 standards (we will offer the 5 workshops once this Fall and twice in Spring 2021). The workshops are open to all faculty, but we offer compensation to 30 faculty who can commit to attend all workshops, complete all deliverables associated with them, and complete a final course review (that shows evidence of how the course meets the Core 24). We have 8 faculty who signed up for compensation, so far. We will reopen the call for applications in late Fall for Spring 2021. We will also use the QLT workshops as the basis for more robust training that we will be offering during intersession, in collaboration with Academic technologies. We asked the provost for approx 230K budget to serve 200 faculty and also have faculty mentors help faculty cohorts.

CSUSM: We are experience some resistance from faculty about going asynchronous versus synchronous, we have now some options between them like meeting 4 times per semester, or meeting once a week instead of 3 times a week. Also we are experience some ‘student app. Fatigue’ issues…we have trainings/workshops every week with some regular faculty attendance but is a small of us working, so that’s make it very hard to create a healthy safe space.

Sac State we have scheduled 5 QM reviews this AY, currently working on Fasc 30 Fashion & Human Environment, and a couple of Nursing courses coming up soon. Reviews include internal review then QM review. Also have a FLC around QM, one this semester and one next semester, geared towards having course meet standards.

CSUCI - Common Concerns include assessment. Which needs a pedagogical ‘rethink’ by many who are asking for proctoring tools. The unlearning is the challenge. Same issues with defining course modality and communicating that to students. Senate is still sitting on making a decision about course observation/SRTs for Fall. Teaching to the ‘black square’ is a common concern expressed by faculty teaching through video conferencing. Again, a pedagogical shift is at the heart of the concern, and supporting the mind-shift is the challenge. Upcoming webinar will specifically address a/synchronous and what to consider when choosing where certain content and interaction should ‘live’ in the course.
Chiara Ferrari - Chico State
47:31
workload is definitely an issue
Allison Evans

CSUB: Three TOPS sessions, QM and QLT trainings, weekly IT trainings. Students do not seem to know the difference between synchronous and asyc and do not appear ready for remote proctoring. It needs to become more of a norm for it to not create test anxiety, and feel like “big brother” is watching (remote proctoring is just recorded though)
Chiara Ferrari - Chico State

and student engagement (or lack thereof)
Megan Eberhardt
47:59
^Definitely an increase in faculty workload
Megan Eberhardt
48:19
^Yes! And student fatigue or seeming ‘less engaged’

In case people are interested - I created a revised QLT course evaluation tool that intersects online teaching with anti-racist, culturally relevant, and humanizing teaching practices that I’m using with a QLT-FLC that I’m running. Here’s the tool: https://bit.ly/2H1l0Wy
Daniel Soodjinda - Stan State

It includes the 24 central QLT objectives + additional anti-racist teaching practices

re: accessibility-- I try to 'sell' a 'culture of access' rather than compliance. But with everything else it is a 'hard sell.'
Megan Eberhardt
56:51
Thank you Daniel!
Nancy Quam-Wickham
57:44
I’ve found it helpful to reframe discussions of accessibility: It is a civil rights issue. Few faculty will object to that approach.

thanks so much, Daniel!

NILOA has a research library of equitable assessments; there is also an HBCU initiative on equity and inclusion in online assessments

Thank you Daniel!!

It's always great to have faculty develop things they'll use in their own courses, so I really like that.
Daniel Soodjinda - Stan State

Thank you everyone. I appreciate the support!
Mary Bennett
01:07:09
Examples would be great and much appreciated
Kathy Arnold
01:08:46
Agreed (helping students understand the virtual classroom and how to be successful learners)
Allison Evans; CSUB
01:10:58
Thank you; it was great to hear everyone’s comments — definitely need to have the advanced course address equity and inclusion in some concrete way —

Thank you! Looking forward to learning more about the advanced QLT course. Nice to hear common concerns - it is very validating!

I have to leave for the next meeting.
Sheryl Hathaway

Please excuse me if this has been covered before. Are campuses providing stipends to faculty during the academic year? Thank you for all the great information! Sheryl.hathaway@csulb.edu
Chiara Ferrari - Chico State
01:19:53
we do, as part of the QLT workshops series (if they attend all workshops)
Kathy Arnold
01:20:35
I have to leave for another meeting. Thanks, everyone!
