Small Teaching Online: Applying Learning Science in Online Classes Virtual Book Study: This 2019 book by Flower Darby is a top read among instructional designers and faculty who teach online. From the publisher: The concept of small teaching is simple: small and strategic changes have enormous power to improve student learning. Instructors face unique and specific challenges when teaching an online course. This book offers small teaching strategies that will positively impact the online classroom.

Join a virtual book group to discuss the book in live online discussions. Participants will also have the opportunity to practice implementing strategies that the author describes in an Inside Higher Ed interview as “effective, yet doable…small successes”. This book study will be facilitated by Kaitlin Lucas, Chemeketa Community College.

Kaitlin Lucas works in the Tech Hub at Chemeketa Community College, where she supports faculty with academic technology and online course development. She also facilitates faculty development workshops on Universal Design for Learning (UDL), online pedagogy, and the college's learning management system.
