What Three Things Should I Do Each Week to Engage Online Students?
Discover practical, ready-to-implement ideas for day-to-day interactions that can make a real difference in the way your online students relate to you and engage with your course content.
Your online students need to feel connected.
Here's what you can do to help.
In a traditional classroom, you needn’t worry much about your “presence”: you’re right there in front of the room. But when online, your students need the same kind of connection. Without a strong sense of your presence, they can drift away, disconnect from the course, and lose interest.
While the nature of technology creates distance between you and your students, it also offers ways to establish rapport and build connections.
In What Three Things Should I Do Each Week to Engage Online Students?, Jean Mandernach, PhD, the executive director of the Center for Innovation in Research and Teaching at Grand Canyon University, offers you a multifaceted approach to increasing students’ engagement and connectedness. In a compact, content-rich presentation, she explains how to:
Connect—see how you can establish a personalized presence for your students by infusing course content with your own experiences and using technology to help students better understand your teaching style and expectations.
Interact—discover how to make online discussions and other elements of your courses more deeply and meaningfully interactive by applying your knowledge and expertise to guide students through a richer process of discovery and learning.
Respond—learn techniques to make yourself available to students—ones that don’t create unsustainable demands on your time. Research shows instructor responsiveness is critical to both student satisfaction and learning outcomes.
Throughout the presentation, you’ll find practical, ready-to-implement ideas for day-to-day interactions that can make a real difference in the way your online students relate to you and engage with your course content—which ultimately has a powerful impact on student learning, retention, and satisfaction.
