Go Virtual


    For spring 2021, Chico State will continue remote learning. For those who were not able to attend the Summer Institute, we are offering a Go Virtual Intersession for faculty to learn how to convert classes into effective online courses. Faculty who are teaching in spring 2021 and have not already taken Go Virtual before are invited to apply. Teaching Assistants who are the instructors of record and/or who bear the primary responsibility for designing and teaching the section are also invited to apply.

    The program goals include: improving the virtual experience for both students and faculty, while maximizing learning, engagement, and success. Unlike the Summer Institute, the Go Virtual Intersession will be shorter, totaling eight working days, January 6-15, 2021. The first five days will involve synchronous sessions, workshops and cohort time. During the last three days participants can choose workshops, work on course development and/or complete Go Virtual deliverables. See the Program Schedule At-A-Glance (Google Doc) (this schedule still subject to change).

    Letters of Call for Participants and Mentors


    We offered two “Go Virtual Summer Institutes” for faculty to learn how, and to have the time, to convert existing classes into effective online or blended courses. Institute goals include: improving the virtual experience for both students and faculty, and maximizing learning, engagement, and success. This Institute totals almost three weeks: nearly five days of institute sessions with embedded cohort meetings, and nine days of work time to design and digitize content and materials.


    We asked faculty to share their course designs for Fall 2020, to reflect on Go Virtual Summer Institute and what they learned. You will find both a "catalog" of selected faculty videos and also the video showcase channel of thumbnails.
