Energizing Student Engagement with FlipGrid and More!


Tired of looking at bunch of greyed out circles representing your students on Collaborate Ultra? Wishing you could recognize your online students if you saw them on campus? Hoping for your questions to be met with engaged interest? Then, come to this workshop about motivating your students to engage with each other and you! Angela Westphal wowed instructors this summer with her inspired use of FlipGrid as a way to get her students communicating with each other. Now, she’s back to share how using FlipGrid and Collaborate Ultra helped her students form connections and a community during this fall semester.  As students create and post videos on FlipGrid, they move from greyed out silent participants to energized creators connecting with their peers and offering support. This workshop will focus on the details of creating assignments, sharing content, establishing norms and grading participation.
