DESCRIPTION: The transition from traditional to remote instruction was a challenging task for many instructors and students alike. Join two of our authors, Mona Panchal and Esmeralda Medrano, for a 45-minute talk about the challenges they faced and the lessons learned while adapting to remote learning. Mona and Esmeralda will share their gained knowledge on the topics of attendance, creating and giving assessments, and providing feedback using CANVAS’ SpeedGrader to ease faculty’s transition to remote teaching while upholding a positive student learning experience.
ABOUT THE PRESENTERS
Esmeralda Medrano: Esme is a first-generation college student and is a product of the California Community College system, and most recently received an Education Leadership Doctorate from CSU, Fullerton. She also believes that non-STEM students deserve a better introduction to statistics concepts that can lead to an easier transition into Introductory Statistics, an introduction that is not necessarily taught in the algebra sequence.
Mona Panchal: Mona is currently a tenured professor at East Los Angeles College (ELAC) and has been the Vice Chair of the mathematics department since 2011. Focusing on the community college level, Mona has created a niche at ELAC by completing extensive work with Course Learning Outcomes and helping pilot PRESTIGE—a program designed to transition students transferring to California State University, Los Angeles by including an on-campus university lab component with her statistics course.
