Full course description
This workshop is FREE, but participants will need to obtain their own copy of the book prior to the start of the course: Small Teaching Online: Applying Learning Science in Online Classes, by Flower Darby and James Lang.
Whether you are teaching online for the first time or are a seasoned online veteran, fostering student engagement and instructor presence can be a challenge. But in your time-starved world, how do you make changes that offer the most bang for your buck? In their book, Small Teaching Online: Applying Learning Science in Online Classes, Flower Darby and James Lang give practical, small, research-based strategies that can have a large impact in online classrooms for engagement and success, as well as the development of reflective teaching practice. This book group will combine synchronous and asynchronous discussion of the text with practical, hands-on application activities to help you build your online teaching toolkit.
At the conclusion of these sessions, you should be able to:
- Apply effective engagement strategies to foster student persistence and success in a current or planned online course.
- Create a synchronous or asynchronous course activity using an evidence-based strategy.
- Utilize reflective teaching practice to develop plans for growth in online teaching.
