    Webinar 1 Transitioning to Online Teaching amid Covid-19 Pandemic Outbreak: Perspectives, Insights & Experiences

    Tuesday, June 30, 2020 at 11 AM Eastern Time (US & Canada)

    • Description: The Covid-19 global pandemic has disrupted education. Classes pivoted from in-person to online mode almost overnight as universities shut all across the world. The unplanned, sudden and seismic shift to online teaching at scale – with no training and little preparation – has created both challenges and opportunities, even as faculty have been stretched professionally and personally. What have been the biggest challenges in transitioning to online teaching? How have these challenges been addressed? What important pedagogical considerations had to be made in online teaching? How were these considerations put into practice, and have they been effective? We will discuss these and other questions as part of this webinar. We have invited three faculty, one from U.S.A., one from India, and one from Australia, to the panel, to share their perspectives, insights and experiences. There will be opportunity to ask questions.

    • Facilitator: Joo Seng Tan (ajstan@ntu.edu.sg) – Nanyang Business School, Singapore
    • Panelists: Kurt Beyer (University of California, Berkeley, USA), Kajari Mukherjee (Indian Institute of Management Indore, India), and Pi-Shen Seet (Edith Cowan University, Australia).

    Webinar 2 Experiential Learning for Remote Courses: Reflections and Best Practices  

    Wednesday, July 22, 2020 at 11 AM Eastern Time (US & Canada)

    • Description: Experiential learning has long been regarded as a highly effective instructional strategy. With further expansion of remote teaching, the question remains how to incorporate multi-cultural and experiential opportunities in in online classes. In this webinar, participants will learn about a variety of experiential learning approaches including using cases, simulations, and real-world consulting projects in remote settings. A panel of international business and management professors will share their observations and experiences on the topic. Participants will learn about the best practices and pedagogical implications at the intersection of experiential and distance learning.

    • Facilitator: Rimi Zakaria (zakariar@uww.edu) – University of Wisconsin – Whitewater, USA
    • Panelists: Bill Newburry (Florida International University, USA), Bill Schiano (Bentley University, USA), and Vas Taras (University of North Carolina – Greensboro, USA)
