The University of Florida is embracing summer online course delivery. We believe it is not the modality, but the teacher who makes a difference. We invite faculty to ponder the possibilities of online teaching, and to join us for the #NoWallsTeaching movement. Online doesn’t mean confined to a computer screen, it only means that our classroom just got bigger!
What Does No Walls Teaching Mean?
“No Walls Teaching” is instruction that extends beyond the confines of a traditional classroom and the glare of a computer screen. It is an approach to teaching and learning that cultivates a sense of community among students and fosters connections between students and instructors. This is done by combining relevant content and engaging activities to create authentic learning experiences. No Walls Teaching embraces collaborative learning, experiential learning, and research techniques in a humanized setting.
How It Works
Come join the #NWT movement! Brainstorm with other teachers to think creatively about your teaching. Consider new ways of learning engagement that are not confined within the classroom or even Canvas. Come join us at social hours, game nights, and the No Walls Teaching retreat, and discover ways to “level up” your teaching!
