Frequently, best practices in teaching and learning are based on the mode in which a class is offered (face-to-face or online). While this has been historically useful, advances in technology have created instructional and interaction opportunities that blur the boundary between physical and online classrooms. Just as asynchronous activities can be incorporated as out-of-class activities to support face-to-face classes, synchronous interactions can be utilized as a component of an online course. As such, to create engaging learning experiences, faculty must think beyond class type (face-to-face or online) to focus on the mode of teaching and learning (synchronous or asynchronous) that will most effectively meet their learning objectives.

Asynchronous activities are particularly well-suited for learning objectives that require research, development, or individual practice; in contrast, synchronous activities are best for targeting difficult concepts in which students need immediacy or guidance. In this webinar, we will explore a decision-making process for selecting synchronous or asynchronous activities as a function of what you want your students to know, value, or do. Utilizing Bloom’s Taxonomy as a foundation, you will evaluate individual learning objectives to align instructional goals with the mode of interaction to create an active, engaged classroom experience.
