Zoom’s breakout rooms provide a unique opportunity to learn to create active and engaging learning experiences for students.

Join Contact North | Contact Nord’s Research Associate, Dr. Ron Owston, who describes how educators can:

  • Move beyond holding ineffective, unstructured breakout room discussions
  • Create distinctive breakout room roles for students to promote active participation
  • Employ a variety of tools and techniques to enhance breakout room experiences
  • Pre-assign students to breakout rooms or allow them to chose their own
  • Design creative ways for students to report breakout room outcomes to the whole class
  • Make use of breakout rooms in large enrolment courses
  • Participants have ample opportunity to ask questions during the webinar.
