Gates Foundation Learning Lab

In fall 2020 a team of UTA faculty selected by their Colleges/Schools attended an APLU/AASCU Educause, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation program facilitated by CRTLE, Every Learner Everywhere. UTA was one of only 3 universities selected to participate in the online learning program titled, Learning Labs: Preparing Faculty for Hybrid and Online Teaching. 

The Learning Lab curriculum covered topics such as: supporting individual and groups of learners; demonstrating respect and concern for learners as human beings; communicating effectively with learners with diverse backgrounds and needs; applying instructional strategies in online teaching to create rich and meaningful experiences for learners; and using feedback techniques to maintain teaching presence.

Join our faculty participants as they share online teaching practices, digital tools, activities, and strategies learned in the program with all UTA faculty and graduate students.

Presenters: Professor Marty Harvey, Professor Jesus Carrasco, Professor Cheryl Mitchell, Professor Kaci O’Donnell, and Dr. Ritu Khanduri
