The measures taken against COVID-19 have forced many universities to switch to online teaching. Every institute provides their own software and support for this, but the international linguistic community are also sharing 'tips and tricks'. Since many of the AVT's members are involved in teaching, we have gathered various initiatives here.
- The Universiteit van Nederland and Marc van Oostendorp have started 'Quarantaine Colleges', to make all online classes in the coming months into open teaching materials, so that students and others who are interested can watch and rewatch them. These are in Dutch, for example Marc's class on phonology.
- Bert le Bruyn made a video on 'the bare necessities of online teaching'.
- A Facebookgroep has been initiated by David Pesetsky for 'Online Linguistics Teaching: Questions, Tips & Tricks'.
- Gretchen McCulloch provides a long list of linguistic videos and suggests links on online linguistic teaching.
- The LSA's Linguistic Academic Depository "is a site for linguists to share teaching materials (..., syllabi, exercises, handouts, and other pedagogical documents)", which has temporarily been made available for non-members too.
Further suggestions can be sent to the Secretary, Jenneke van der Wal.
