Faculty invited to attend technology and teaching town halls

Full town hall schedule and questions

November 7, 2022 — 

As UM contemplates the future of online course delivery, faculty perspectives are a key priority. The Joint UM/UMFA Committee on Technology, Teaching and Learning is working to hear about faculty experiences and identify faculty concerns and areas for support when it comes to online, hybrid and blended forms of course delivery. 

You are encouraged to attend one of four 90-minute town halls to share your views. Your participation is important because your feedback and suggestions will inform the committee’s report and recommendations on the future of technology, teaching and learning at our university.

The town halls will be specifically seeking answers to the following questions:

  • Question one: What is your experience with online (DE), hybrid, or blended forms of course delivery modes at UM and what have the impacts been for your teaching, research and service?
  • Question two: What are your concerns about any future teaching or learning using online, blended, distance and hybrid modes of delivery?
  • Question three: On what criteria and through what process should decisions about mode of delivery be made at UM?
  • Question four: If you were to teach using one of these delivery modes, what supports would you want to see in place?
