Why you don’t want to miss this!

Unfortunately, online classes have a reputation for being dry, boring, and unengaging. Both faculty and students struggle to create and participate in highly interactive online learning experiences, which in turn negatively impacts engagement and motivation to persevere for all involved. Emotion science offers a powerful tool to address this challenge.

This online seminar will examine the research on how emotion and cognition are linked and how emotions impact our online teaching and learning experiences, based on the Community of Inquiry framework. You’ll also explore ways in which emotions are powerfully interrelated to cognitive processes such as attention, motivation, and memory. These insights, along with the strategies involved, will better allow you to increase online student engagement, learning, persistence, and success in your classroom.
