Beyond Teaching Remotely, Let's Go Fully Asynchronous

Friday, June 09 | 9:15AM–10:15AM PT | Avalon, Lobby Level
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Presentation/Panel Presentation

In summer 2020, USF introduced its first set of fully online asynchronous courses as part of an initiative led by the Student Hybrid Experience (SHE) Advisory Board. The purpose of these courses was to create flexible and diverse course offerings for students and faculty, while expanding options for students looking to "stay on track" for four-year graduation. Three years later, 13 of these core courses are running each summer, with another 10 planned for summer 2023. A recent survey of students participating in summer sessions suggested that asynchronous online courses were the preferred course type.
