Humanities faculty can often be hesitant to teach online, especially given the nature of many courses in their disciplines, which are usually discussion oriented, writing intensive, and highly interactive. If you are teaching in the Humanities or have the same concerns this session is meant for you. Humanities faculty who have taught online will share their experiences, the challenges they faced, their suggestions for a successful online experience, as well as pitfalls to avoid.

Guest speakers are:
Elizabeth Redwine, English
Abe Zakhem, Philosophy
Brigitte Koenig, History
