Do you teach online classes? Are your students from diverse backgrounds? Have you sometimes found it difficult to get the online participation you were hoping for? If so, you are not alone. It may be a bit unsettling to hear, but it is common for some students to feel marginalized despite your best intentions to educate in the most inclusive way possible.

In this online seminar you’ll learn about the impact of community and inclusion on online student success from a national at-risk education expert. Join us on February 7 for Online Engagement and Assimilation Strategies For Nontraditional and Marginalized Students, a Magna Online Seminar led by Courtney Plotts. She will identify how you can create social presence and gain student participation from all you students. In the end, you’ll learn strategies for teaching and course development that can be used immediately to improve social presence in all your online classes or courses, resulting in better learning and a better experience for all students.
