LSC discussion: Best practices for virtual conferencing, teaching, and mentorship

Time: 
Friday, March 27, 2020 - 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Location: 
ONLINE (Zoom)

Join online via Zoom: https://umd.zoom.us/j/473402920

Join us to share ideas on how we’re all adjusting to the new normal. This discussion will focus on experiences at virtual conferences, and strategies for virtual teaching and mentorship. It is primarily intended for graduate students, but all are welcome. Topics will include:

  • How can you make the most of presenting at or attending a virtual conference?
  • How can grad students maintain mentoring relationships with undergrad students and RAs using virtual communication tools?
  • How can mentors help undergraduate students who are struggling with isolation and other challenges?
  • How can teachers encourage robust discussion and interaction in a virtual classroom?

Please email shevaun@umd.edu (or any other member of the LSC management team) with other questions or suggestions.
