These fast, focused presentations will equip you with a handy, effective “engagement toolkit.” You’ll see the results through better learning outcomes, better retention, and more satisfying online experiences for you and your students alike.
Three steps to better student engagement in the online classroom
It’s been a challenge from the very first days of online teaching: how can we engage students more fully? How can we turn them from passive recipients of course material into engaged learners, fully committed to and invested in the experience?
You’ll find some of the keys to better student engagement in a trio of 20-Minute Mentor programs presented by Jean Mandernach, PhD, the executive director of the Center for Innovation in Research and Teaching at Grand Canyon University and a leading authority on strategies for online teaching.
In the Fostering Learning and Engagement in the Online Classroom Three Pack , Mandernach explores three areas in which your efforts have the greatest impact on student engagement: discussions, assignments, and regular faculty–student interactions.
One of the impediments to robust online class discussions is that they are usually asynchronous—students enter and depart at different times. In What Are the Best Questioning Strategies for Enhancing Online Discussions?, you’ll learn how to design and guide asynchronous discussions that encourage critical inquiry, promote learning, and capture student interest.
Teachers new to online classrooms are often surprised and dismayed to learn how much time they must devote to feedback on assignments—and how inadequate and uninspiring many traditional assignments are. How Do I Design Innovative Assignments to Foster Learning in Online Classrooms? will help you create assignments that are engaging and impactful. You’ll learn how to integrate formative and summative assignments to create significant added value for your students without creating an unsustainable workload for yourself.
Ongoing interaction with your students is just as critical online as it is in traditional classrooms—perhaps more so, given the lack of “face time.” What Three Things Should I Do Each Week to Engage Online Students? focuses on personalized interactions with your students to help build rapport and engagement. You’ll learn how to both streamline and improve lines of communication in ways that respect your busy schedule.
Whether you watch them individually or in a single session, these compact, content-rich programs will be invaluable sources of insight and inspiration on student engagement. They’ll help you enhance learning outcomes, promote better retention, and improve online experiences for your students and for you.
