The CTL Fall Faculty Innovations Showcase is a series of informal talks that highlight teaching innovations that have emerged or solidified in the transition to online teaching. In this series, Baruch faculty show what they worked on during the Fall 2020 semester.
In the following four showcases we consider how we can celebrate and learn from our moments of success as we have adapted to teaching during COVID. We asked presenters to focus on a specific activity/assignment in a course and to reflect on their process.
