Fostering Engagement in Online Discussion

Tuesday, May 19, 2020 2 p.m. - 2:45 p.m., Online

Discussion boards become our default setting for gathering student's thoughts in an online environment. But are we integrating the work students share in their posts into the course as it unfolds? Online discussion offers a means to build a sense of connection not just to the student and course content, but among your students, as well. Drawing on Boettcher & Conrad's (2016) Online Teaching Survival Guide, this webinar will share tips for building a sustainable and rich online discussion practice.

Coffee Talk: Establishing Social Presence in an Online Course

Wednesday, May 20, 2020 1 p.m. - 2 p.m., Online

Establishing social presence in an online course is one aspect of creating a sense of community among online learners, and it is perhaps even more important online than in a face-to-face course. Not only can a sense of community enhance students' learning; it can also help students maintain their motivation and engagement in an online course. But how can social presence be created when students and the instructor interact only virtually? Join us for this Coffee Talk to discuss ways of creating a community in your online course.

Coffee Talk: Transitioning Your Syllabus Online

Tuesday, May 26, 2020 11 a.m. - 12 noon, Online

In ordinary times the most basic function of a syllabus is communicating to students the general content of the course and its organization. During stressful times, like the COVID-19, pandemic an online syllabus also helps students feel an instructor presence in their classes and communicates flexibility and accommodation.

Share your ideas and learn from others about the essential pieces and practices for an online syllabus.
