From Snore to Roar: Creating Energizing and Engaging Online Learning Experiences

Description

One of the major laments of instructors new to online teaching this past spring was they didn’t know if students were engaging with the class or not. The results of the spring Remote Student Learning Survey confirm students’ difficulty engaging. 64% of students responding reported feeling isolated from their instructors and classmates. And, about a third of students named difficulty communicating with peers and instructors as an obstacle to their learning.

In the fall, we have a chance to improve the student experience. Creating energized and engaging online learning experiences will be the key to this shift. This workshop will lead you through how to increase your communication with students, build community, create interactive engaging activities, and organize lively discussions. Such strategies will both increase students’ motivation to participate and their sense of belonging to a community of learners.
