Welcome to F2F Teaching at LTCC!
Face-to-face (F2F) teaching is the oldest and most traditional form of college instruction. F2F instructors teach in a physical classroom. Sometimes this classroom is a space with tables, chairs, and a whiteboard, while other times, this classroom is a working space, such as a laboratory, art lab, or kitchen in which students learn from our faculty in practical and hands-on senses. Regardless of what your classroom space looks like, we wish you the great successes as you interact with your students here at Lake Tahoe Community College. Please take advantage of this page and the many resources that it provides for F2F instruction.
Hi and welcome to the F2F Track at LTCC! Please have a listen to my personal welcome to the F2F track. We are excited to have you onboard as a F2F instructor at LTCC!
Face-to-face classes present their own challenges in terms of the pedagogical techniques or teaching approaches that may be most appropriate for your students. In this focus, we will look at some overarching issues in terms of pedagogy in F2F courses.
Teaching in a F2F class means that you will be using the space of the classroom itself—whether white boards, chairs, technology, or various laboratory equipment—to help deliver your discipline content effectively to students.

In a F2F class, it is important to have the equipment—laboratory devices, technology, tools focused on active participation, and other examples—in order to effectively deliver your discipline content. In this focus, we will address some common concerns in terms of classroom equipment.
The ways in which we use our F2F class time vary with the discipline and the content that we teach. We may consider some overarching approaches to structuring class time—ranging from announcements, checking in with students, lecture, hands-on time, group activity, labs, etc.
Open Educational Resources and Zero Textbook Cost opportunities are a growing facet of the LTCC teaching and learning environment. In this video, we will take a balanced approach to OER and ZTC and discuss how they might transform your learning environment.
Student behavior is a challenge in many learning environments—whether F2F, ISP, or DE. This focus will discuss how F2F classrooms present unique challenges in terms of addressing problems with student behavior.
In the last few years, LTCC has created new and innovative learnings spaces. This video focuses on some of these initiatives in terms of our traditional classroom spaces.
