And Karen authored one of the most useful and timely books out there right now: https://www.amazon.com/Creating-Simple-Sustainable-Educational-Videos/dp/1642670855/ref=asc_df_1642670855/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=430996710134&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=16972780244521105095&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9030289&hvtargid=pla-902712622039&psc=1&tag=&ref=&adgrpid=99728110506&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvadid=430996710134&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=16972780244521105095&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9030289&hvtargid=pla-902712622039

I see a lot of familiar and new names here, great to see you all!
Michelle Denise Miller
22:09
Oops yucky link there but its a great book :-)
Clea Mahoney
22:11
Karen’s book is 💯
Jenae Cohn
22:21
And I see lots of familiar faces from across the conference here…Hi, Mary Beth and Annette!
Jenae Cohn
22:22
+1 Clea
Jenae Cohn
22:30
I’ve recommended Karen’s book SO many times to faculty this summer
Jenae Cohn
23:13
::snap snap::
Annette Miller (she_her_hers)
23:17
Greetings all!
Clea Mahoney
23:20
same, Jenae. One director really latched on bc he was about to order a bunch of fancy tech kits! And I think I convinced him we don’t need fancy tech, we need to increase faculty comfort in making videos :)
Mary Beth Messner
23:32
Hi, everyone! And ditto the kudos for Karen's book - it's such a great resource!
Maddie Shellgren
23:59
here here!
Clea Mahoney
24:13
latching on to the “compensate” - let’s hope a new secretary of Edu will help!
Aimee Whiteside
24:28
Hi Patrick!
Jenae Cohn
24:41
Love the warm fuzzies, shout-outs, and community-building! That’s what we’re here for, right? :)
Jenae Cohn
25:03
Congrats, Patrick! Looks like we’ve got lots of reading to do here...
Clea Mahoney
25:12
honestly, was kinda convinced Patrick Dempsey of McDreamy fame had switched to online learning 😂 nice to meet you, Patrick
Nate Angell (he/him), Hypothesis, Portland, OR
25:31
Like we can do here! Amen
Clea Mahoney
25:32
(that’s a Grey’s Anatomy ref and no I haven’t watched the show)
Aimee Whiteside
25:35
I present at 3:30 but want to stop by and say hi!
Celia Kerr
25:45
I got it, Clea! :-)
Karen Costa (she/her/hers)
25:52
I will read the hell out of that book
Clea Mahoney
26:37
😂
Clea Mahoney
26:43
virtual shirts?
Nate Angell (he/him), Hypothesis, Portland, OR
27:17
No worries Aimee…this ends at 3:30pm ET
Nate Angell (he/him), Hypothesis, Portland, OR
28:08
One thing I do is change my name in zoom to say other stuff about me…
Aimee Whiteside
28:15
Show pets and kids when they barge in! :)
Jenae Cohn
28:20
Yes, Aimee!
Clea Mahoney
28:25
#1 is making mistakes - most of my work is in training staff and faculty, and modeling mistakes is 💯
Patrick Dempsey

Celia Kerr
29:03
I actually play music at the beginning of each class period. I let the students choose a song that is their happy song. It plays during attendance and helps excite us.
Clea Mahoney
29:09
(I lead weekly Q&A session for our current LMS transition, and am completely unafraid to say “I don’t know, but let’s find out together”)
Jeff Renfrow
29:13
video-based feedback on assignments.
Michelle Denise Miller
29:14
Respond to student requests and questions with compassion and understanding. If they are relating something upsetting or tragic - offer condolences! Prioritize well being over deadlines and “standards"
Nate Angell (he/him), Hypothesis, Portland, OR
29:14
I love that Celia
Celia Kerr
29:25
My 6 year old is virtual learning and pops in to wave to my classes and tell them good morning.
Maddie Shellgren
29:36
*try not to haha (love it)
Salvador Arriaga
29:40
Ask my students to take 'selfies' with their favorite tool from the course's list.
Clea Mahoney
29:41
love that Celia
Misty Hamideh (she/her)
29:43
Love it, Celia! I have a faculty member who actually creates Spotify playlists for all her courses!
Celia Kerr
29:48
Thanks!
kaye.temanson
29:55
I have daily assignment discussions post on the discussion board, and the students are asked to respond with comments, and use their names - helps to remind them they are not just print words, but are human
Jenae Cohn
29:57
Love the call for compassion, Michelle!
Clea Mahoney
29:59
that’s so creative, Salvador!
Jenae Cohn
30:06
Discussion posts are great too, Kaye!
Jenae Cohn
30:20
And yes, that’s creative, Salvador!
Dan Roy
30:29
i'm running a course (Building Learning Communities) that is fully student-led, based on their interests and goals. great way to invite them to bring their integrated selves into class.
kaye.temanson
30:37
I have a yuja intro video
Karen Costa (she/her/hers)
30:42
Love these ideas!
Jeff Renfrow
30:44
small group, video-based, synchronous discussions have been super well received due to their ability to facilitate social presence and accountability to peers.
Celia Kerr
30:50
I send periodic emails telling the students that I care about them and ask how they and their families are doing because I care about them as people. It means a lot.
Karen Costa (she/her/hers)
31:08
Outreach in online is huge Celia, that’s awesome
Michelle Denise Miller
31:09
Celia, that is awesome! I need to do that.
Celia Kerr
31:12
Thanks!
Patrick Dempsey

Michelle Denise Miller
31:21
Not every email has to be an announcement or admonishment :-)
Clea Mahoney
31:23
my cats are often camera-shy, but I really like my new rhino friend….will put camera on so you can look out for him 😉
Annette Miller (she_her_hers)
31:35
maybe silly.but simple — I post some pics, like the pumpkins that my family and I carved for Halloween; pics of the beautiful fall colors - students remark on these simple things often
Nate Angell (he/him), Hypothesis, Portland, OR
31:50
Oh I want to see Clea’s rhino
Jenae Cohn
32:00
Love the seasonal connection, Annette! That can help people feel grounded in tradition and ritual
kaye.temanson
32:12
pics are fun for interaction - love the pumpkin idea
Karen Costa (she/her/hers)
32:22
Cute rhino
Jenae Cohn
32:25
RHINO!!
Celia Kerr
32:30
I change my background every class and let the students make suggestions. This week was Disney week for the conference. Students like picking vacation backgrounds.
Jenae Cohn
32:37
Oooh, “feedback cycles”
Aimee Whiteside
32:41
Have to run but already learned so much. Have a great day!
Clea Mahoney
32:47
I don’t have kids, I’m in my 30s and just have a lot of stuffed animals...
Karen Costa (she/her/hers)
32:49
Virtual backgrounds can be super fun. I’ve heard of faculty using them for trivia. Guess where in the world I am.
Nate Angell (he/him), Hypothesis, Portland, OR
32:58
Another great one Celia! I’ve also heard about inviting students to change their avatars
Clea Mahoney
33:22
yes, that’s another great one especially for the camera shy
Clea Mahoney
33:38
I made mine in canva.com :) and I’ve made some for friends!
Clea Mahoney
33:52
I also made matching backgrounds for all my student employees…will turn on that one
Jenae Cohn
34:02
Ask learners what they know… Great connection to the learning sciences too!
Patrick Dempsey
34:14
Clea, always new! Love the backgrounds
Clea Mahoney
34:18
everyone got dragons and their name. Dragons were an inside joke :)
Nate Angell (he/him), Hypothesis, Portland, OR
34:23
Nice background Clea…are those dragons?
Jenae Cohn
34:25
Building on prior knowledge can help create new pathways
Jeff Renfrow
34:34
Or what they think they know.
kaye.temanson
34:41
I ask them too, and have them write a journal entry and post on blackboard for all to see - describe what they know and what they expect the class to teach them
Clea Mahoney
35:30
there’s my baby behind me
Dan Roy
35:34
we made a teacher practice space (online tool) for roleplaying conversations to figure out what students know, called Eliciting Learner Knowledge
Nate Angell (he/him), Hypothesis, Portland, OR
35:37
Ungrading? Is anyone doing it?
Nate Angell (he/him), Hypothesis, Portland, OR
35:46
Clea, here’s mine
Karen Costa (she/her/hers)
36:25
New upgrading book https://www.amazon.com/Ungrading-Students-Undermines-Learning-Education/dp/1949199827/ref=pd_lpo_14_t_0/144-4781074-4254101?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=1949199827&pd_rd_r=946beba6-baaf-4f6d-9b68-7ae33f37fc7c&pd_rd_w=6kmwF&pd_rd_wg=CI6j8&pf_rd_p=7b36d496-f366-4631-94d3-61b87b52511b&pf_rd_r=SZR4K5F1FMAME8PV5V3A&psc=1&refRID=SZR4K5F1FMAME8PV5V3A
Salvador Arriaga
36:30
Thank you this is more interesting and interactive session than I expected!!
Jenae Cohn
36:30
Would love to hear about whether anyone is building in some good Ungrading infrastructure in their online classes
Karen Costa (she/her/hers)
36:34
+1!
Jenae Cohn
36:46
Yay, Salvador! Glad you’re enjoying the dialogue! 👍🏻
Clea Mahoney
36:50
Dan that sounds super cool
Karen Costa (she/her/hers)
36:52
I wrote about this the other day…it’s shorter than a book :) https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/formative-assessment-online-learning-let-them-ride-bike-karen-costa/
Nate Angell (he/him), Hypothesis, Portland, OR
36:53
Thank you Salvador! That is the goal here
Jenae Cohn
37:14
Yes, I’d love to learn more about that, Dan! Role play is such a great tool
Dan Roy
37:20
longer-term projects built on learner interests help them develop confidence and expertise they can share with others
Mary Klann
37:51
I’m doing ungrading this fall. Followed Laura Gibb’s format: http://oudigitools.blogspot.com/2019/03/getting-rid-of-grades-book-chapter.html. Students “declare” whether they complete an assignment and get the full points if they do it. I focus all my time on meaningful feedback. Students also provide feedback to each other throughout the course.
Celia Kerr
38:15
Jason, my daughter loves your office and Captain America items.
Jenae Cohn
38:16
Ooh, thanks for sharing your approach, Mary!
Nate Angell (he/him), Hypothesis, Portland, OR
38:25
I saw you here Mary and figured you might chime in. Laura Gibbs is a hero of mine!
Dan Roy
38:25
eliciting learner knowledge. the pic shows cards, but there's also an online version https://libby.teachingsystemslab.org/projects/elk/
Jenae Cohn
38:58
Thanks for sharing that link, Dan!
Mary Klann
39:04
Everything they do is “public”—they get to see each other’s work throughout the quarter/semester. Everyone gets to know each other more and form a community.
Alexis Terrell
39:31
That’s such a valuable “bonus,” Mary!
Nate Angell (he/him), Hypothesis, Portland, OR
39:33
Mary might want to come on live and talk about how she shifted the work with formative work...
Patrick Dempsey
39:34
@Mary, I love that!
Jenae Cohn
39:51
Ooh, yes, Mary… would you be willing to say more on the mic?
Celia Kerr
39:54
I love that, too, Mary!
Mary Klann
40:04
Sure, just have to make sure I don’t have any salad in my teeth :)
Michelle Denise Miller
40:12
Yes - I feel validated for ditching a few of the usual weekly assignments towards the end of the semester now. It just needed midcourse correction and there was too much (and student were doing well)
Clea Mahoney
40:15
I’ll happily give Laura Gibbs a shoutout on twitter about this :) she’s amazing
Patrick Dempsey
40:33
yes @Karen, making the process explicit and visual!
Dan Roy
40:36
project work for a real audience, as opposed to just for a grade, has lots of opportunities for feedback from other practitioners or real audiences
Clea Mahoney
40:43
i’m buzzing with caffeine overload lol
Clea Mahoney
41:09
drop your handle, Mary!
Michelle Denise Miller
41:12
Well I’ll fix that right now! :-)
Jenae Cohn
41:13
You got yourself a new follow, Mary :)

Karen Costa (she/her/hers)

Clea Mahoney
41:20
woot done!
Nate Angell (he/him), Hypothesis, Portland, OR
41:34
You can learn more about Mary here: https://www.maryklann.com/
Nancy Kaplan-Biegel
41:35
Re the last speaker: Not to mention that we have to be mindful of the weight of so many assignments a week as well. utilizing our LMSs to help our time management on feedback.
Jenae Cohn
42:11
Yes, great point, Nancy… The LMS can be a valuable tool for organizing the experience (and this could happen in blogs too if you’re using a blog framework)
Karen Costa (she/her/hers)
42:11
Sounds like a space of mutualism, benefits students and faculty
Jenae Cohn
43:24
And if anyone here has any suggestions for parts of the OLC conference they’re excited about, please share that too!
Nate Angell (he/him), Hypothesis, Portland, OR
43:34
Ooo spaces of mutualism
Jenae Cohn
43:35
Any flags for particular sessions you’re attending or are looking forward to is always appreciated
Jenae Cohn
43:41
“Spaces of mutualism” is a great expression
kaye.temanson
43:47
would love to learn more examples of teaching time management online
Michelle Denise Miller
44:15
Yes. Leadership needs to hear this loudly and often. And we do too. Thank you.
Patrick Dempsey
44:43
patrick@pretzl.me
Jenae Cohn
44:57
@Kaye: That would be a great topic of conversation for a future session!
kaye.temanson
45:11
would happily attend that session
Karen Costa (she/her/hers)
45:25
The wound is where the light gets in
Jenae Cohn
45:26
