Glad Nan mentioned recording -- which prompted me to start recording. I thought I'd had it set to record automatically but I must have changed it. Sorry this recording missed the recap of efforts to date.

Thanks Arlen

Are you talking about "super-MOOCs"?
Chelle Younker
23:24
Ohio Math Initiative Chairs and Leads will be discussing joining efforts to discuss assessing work and developing common materials for a variety of math courses - precalc included

For collaborative instructional efforts, we need to be mindful of notation. It sounds trivial, but if faculty share by writing different lectures or assignments or whatever, if they mix notation it's really hard for students.

What time on Monday is this assessment panel?
Rachel Levy
23:53
Maybe someone from a 2-yr college for the final panelist?
Nancy Sattler
24:09
I think Chelle would be a great addition!
Chelle Younker
24:54
Thanks, Nan. I would be happy to help
Dave Kung
25:09
Chelle - that would be great!
Nancy Sattler
25:44
I would be happy to work with the group on assessment from a year two year

An anecdote about online exams: many students now have their textbooks online or in pdf. So if they're taking a proctored online exam that is open-book but won't let them go outside the test window, there are technological challenges. Just a random piece
Nancy Sattler
27:01
that was a two year college perspective
Dave Kung
27:15
Nan - thanks.
Dave Kung
27:33
Everyone - thanks for the ideas.
Abbe Herzig
27:46
Can we aim at a "top ten assessment practices" tool?
Nancy Sattler
27:57
Great idea Abbe!

Anyone using Microsoft Teams?

Blackboard collaborate - I took over a class from an instructor who just couldn’t handle this virtual environment - which has really been difficult with classroom culture
Dave Kung
32:40
Oof. Paula, sounds like a double whammy - taking over from someone else and taking things remote.
Dave Kung
33:21
I’m using Blackboard Collaborate and Google Sheets - the Active Calculus activities are up as shared spreadsheets.
Chelle Younker
34:26
Nan - Owens just made Teams available to all faculty. We are not teaching with Teams now but will most likely for Summer 2020
Nancy Sattler
35:22
Terra has made Teams available for all faculty. I prefer ZOOM because Teams only allows everyone to see the last four speakers
Nancy Sattler
43:26
Is anyone using social media?

I just started reading this book which is great to help us think about access in a virtual environment. https://www.amazon.com/Reach-Everyone-Teach-Universal-Education/dp/1946684600

Something like this might be nice: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7148145/

I love Nan's question of thinking about "what opportunities (due to the current situation) do we have now that we didn't have before"
Nancy Sattler
56:44
Many students set up groups to discuss the course
Chelle Younker
57:31
Some of our QR students are doing group projects with Google Hangouts
Abbe Herzig
57:47
Bree raises a great idea with that reference link: online "visitors" gives us a great opportunity to show the diversity of the mathematical community
Dave Kung
58:19
Not sure if anyone’s mentioned Slack. I’ve heard that mentioned elsewhere.

Has anyone else had the experience of being somewhat surprised when you see the transcription of your class on Zoom or WebEx? I thought I was a lot more articulate than I am! Also raises a lot of FERPA questions if the recordings become public?
Chelle Younker
01:02:36
It makes sense to me to continue through the summer
Haynes R Miller
01:02:56
I think the fall will present a whole new range of challenges
Chelle Younker
01:03:06
I agree, Haynes
Abbe Herzig

I'm not on an academic calendar so summer works for me
