Dr. Tom Weissling was featured on a "Level Up" video from Great Plains IDEA in late February. The topic of his video is packaging insect collections for shipment in distance education entomology classes.
The video may be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXOB6p4gaWo.
Level Up! is a Great Plains IDEA series that showcases helpful strategies for online teaching. In this episode, Weissling discusses how he creates an interactive approach for his online class. He demonstrates how students can mail insect samples to him and the support that he provides with this project.
Instructors who want to implement a more hands-on experience in an online class can get great inspiration from this video. Learn more about Great Plains IDEA and the association's principles of effective online teaching at https://www.gpidea.org/principles-of-effective-online-teaching.
