Distance learning over the last three months of the spring semester proved to be very challenging for many of us. While most teachers became comfortable using synchronous tools (Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams) and asynchronous ways to deliver instruction (Google Classroom, Learning Management Systems [LMS] and screencasting tools), there are still areas of concern related to assessments and the extent to which they engage our students in meaningful collaboration. In this column I discuss some strategies to promote an engaging, active learning environment while teaching remotely. I include examples of laboratory investigations, concept development activities, and problem solving along with suggested digital tools.
