Live Class Lecture Tips:
- Do a quick social check-in at the beginning of class. Instead of leaving an awkward silence while students are arriving, use the opportunity to chat. Ask students what’s new and interesting in their lives, what their holiday plans are, etc. Just as in a physical classroom, some chitchat helps to break down social barriers while creating the expectation of interaction. You might consider pre-loading a slide that features a current event, cartoon, or trivia question to spark conversation in the minutes before class begins.
- Be sure to check-in during your lecture. Problems can arise during lecture time and if you will stop and get interaction from a few students you can find out how your lecture is being received. If there are technical problems, you will want to know before you have talked for 20 minutes so you can address the issue.
