Dual Audience Teaching

An item from the folks at the USDLA.  Note that what they describe as dual audience teaching is what is often referred to in the K-12 environment as co-seating or co-located teaching or concurrent teaching or just hybrid learning in many parts of Canada.

How do you tackle the style of delivering instruction to a classroom while at the same time delivering instruction online?
ADECIA FOR ACADEMICS
There are many ideas on this, but one thing required in all of these is, high-quality audio and video.
Audio quality plays a critical role in facilitating communication with students – especially in today’s unique environments.
With education technology tools to enhance classroom audio, students have shown improved attention, increased classroom participation, fewer discipline issues and improved academic success.
Yamaha Unified Communications is dedicated to the advancement of education through quality collaboration solutions. Learn more about our easy-to-use, plug-and-play solutions and how they are empowering educators to deliver efficient and impactful lessons in the new hybrid teaching world.

USDLA Webinar
Mental Health & Distance Learning Pre & Post COVID
June 4, 2021 – 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET
Alan Lorenz, MD, Physician, RIT Student Health Center, Clinical Associate Professor of Family Medicine & Psychiatry, University of Rochester
Nathaan Demers, Psy.D.
Licensed Clinical Psychologist,
VP of Clinical Programs & Strategic Partnerships, Grit Digital Health
Description: Prior to the pandemic, mental health and well-being were challenges that put increasing demands on institutions of higher learning. The pandemic brought more stressors, while diminishing traditional coping strategies. Distance learners were in some ways ahead of the curve, but certainly not immune, and mental health needs became even more acute. This webinar will overview mental health and well-being trends both before and during COVID, and provide specific recommendations for administrators and faculty to adopt a proactive stance ahead of
the 2021-2022 academic year.
