Transitioning to Remote Teaching: Synchronous and Asynchronous Delivery

This webinar was developed by the ITE Transportation Education Council

Webinar Description:
Transitioning to remote online teaching introduces a host of challenges from the perspective of both the instructor and the student population. One of the key decisions that has a pronounced impact on numerous aspects of courses delivery is whether to deliver instruction synchronously or asynchronously. Synchronous instruction occurs in real-time, with students typically receiving instruction through a video-conferencing platform. Asynchronous instruction leverages pre-recorded content, which the students can access at any time.

Both methods of delivery introduce a series of advantages and disadvantages for both the student and instructor, including the resources required for effective implementation, as well as the manner in which communication and feedback is facilitated. This webinar will provide an introduction to remote teaching, including a broad overview of differences between in-person and online delivery, as well as subtle differences based upon the delivery method. An interactive format will allow for faculty and students to share diverse perspectives on how to navigate the challenges posed by online instruction, particularly in consideration of how such issues are exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
