Teaching in a Synchronous Lecture Hall

InstructorDCS’s Synchronous Lecture Halls are designed to connect two classrooms so that an instructor in one room can teach to students in both rooms. Our synchronous rooms are immersive. They are designed to create an experience for remote students that mirrors the experience of students in the instructor’s rooms. While we strive to provide SLHs that do not require faculty to change how they teach, there are some differences that require adapting to in order to succeed in these rooms. The following considerations reflect the experience of Rutgers faculty and academics teaching via similar methods at other institutions. Click on each consideration for more information. 

Please contact us with any suggestions for issues or solutions that  could benefit the Rutgers community. For technical instructions on operating the rooms' equipment, visit the Immersion Lectern page.
