Description

With an ever-changing student population in both undergraduate and graduate courses, the opportunity to create shifts toward increasing online course offerings to meet the needs of diverse student populations is both a timely and important consideration. This session will focus on how to think flexibly about content delivery in order to take small steps towards reframing and reforming preconceptions of online learning opportunities. The facilitator will share strategies for how to take small steps to reshape both what we think an online learning forum is and how to promote a sense of community through online learning opportunities. Tips for creating more engaging discussion forums, screencast presentations, collaborative Google Docs and strategies for designing flexible groups will be shared. Bring laptops if interested in participating interactively.
