8 MicroTweaks to Improve Your Teaching
Jay Phelan, Instructor, Life Sciences Core Curriculum, UCLA

Teaching remotely on Zoom provides an opportunity to teach and build learner communities in a new way -- across time zones and health systems. To optimize learner success, educators must embrace and master the virtual education format tradeoffs. In this session, we will engage educators to optimize their Zoom interactions with learners, through hands on experience with: Maximizing their personal Zoom presence Coaching learners on their Zoom presence Making curricular modifications for virtual education for knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviors Enhancing curricular reach with remote speakers and learners Creation of group micro-assignments Using breakout sessions and multi-Zoom sessions Using critical Zoom features: Public and private Chat, polling, annotating, screen sharing, reactions.

Talk Matters: Exploring Instructor Talk – Non-Content Classroom Language that May Mediate Student Inclusion, Engagement, and Learning
Kimberly Tanner, PhD, Professor, Biology, San Francisco State University

Through the language they use, instructors create classroom environments that have the potential to impact learning by affecting student motivation, resistance, belonging, and self-efficacy. Despite the critical importance of instructor language to the student experience, few instructors have focused on the non-content language being used in classrooms. We have systematically investigated this “Instructor Talk,” namely all the instructor language used in class sessions that is not directly related to course content. In this interactive session, participants will engage with colleagues in reflecting on their own memories of Instructor Talk, categorizing multiple samples of Instructor Talk, and strategizing about how increased attention to Instructor Talk could support them in to creating inclusive learning environments.
