2020 Teach-In Moments
Thank you Teach-In Attendees
Thank you for your participation in the 2020 Teach-In! The level of engagement from students, faculty and staff was truly inspiring.
Despite the fact that we have been in transition for months and feeling tech overload - we adapted and engaged in difficult dialogues for the betterment of our campus and our life.
Preliminary numbers show 1235 registrations.
The sessions had between 151 and 28 participants and most participants attended 1.5 session, streaming for an average of 120 min.
We can all proudly say 'mission accomplished'! It is clear we have a vibrant learning community at GVSU.
And, a gentle reminder that you can use Whova any time for the next six months!
You can continue to upload resources such as documents and videos, post topics on the community board, and/or network and create meet ups (zoom rooms).
While we missed the opportunity for some face-to-face time during the Teach-In, we surely gained more than we lost.
We are already excited for the 2021 Teach-In.
Between now and then – we wish you the best as you apply all you learned – moving from ideas to action.
The Teach-In Organizers
The Student Senate Gave a Big Hand to the Organizers!
Alexys Neal and Julian Sanders (Senators) were instrumental as liaison during the campaign. They asked one of their own members to create some graphics for their instagram campaign on the Teach-In. Further, they held a feedback booth during the Teach-In. Be they thanked for all their work!
A special thank you to Vince Saint Germain (BBCollaborate), Samantha McLaughlin (Zoom) and Daniel Chang and the Zendesk (Whova)
