Associate Professor | College of Public Health | Kent Campus
Dr. Bhargava served as one of the CTL Faculty Fellows last year, where she focused on bringing bandwidth tools too faculty. She has led multiple workshops and trainings for faculty in the past several years. She recently shared her expertise on student mental bandwidth with 250 instructors during five remote instruction workshops hosted by CTL & OCDE this summer, which provided an important framework for remote course design and implementation. Her work on cognitive bandwidth continues to make a positive and lasting impact on the Kent State University community and beyond (see everydaybandwidth.com for further information).

Remote Instruction Leadership
Psychological Sciences | Kent Campus
Drs. Sciartelli and Joynes teamed up to help their colleagues transition to remote instruction this summer. They took what they learned about remote instruction this summer and tailored it to meet the needs of instructors in their department. They created a blackboard site for instructors with topics ranging from student engagement, communication, Collaborate Ultra, Kaltura, organization, and testing and assessments. Their materials contain links to how-to videos, pros and cons comparisons for different methods/techniques, among other resources. They also led a number of synchronous trainings for colleagues in August.
