HOW TO CREATE COMMUNITY AMONG PARTICIPANTS IN ONLINE COURSES
Sam Gill, Professor and Associate Chair Religious Studies
A major challenge of online courses arises in the obvious distance of the participants, students and faculty, from one another. How can online courses be developed and presented so that everyone feels some personal connection with one another through the term of the course? This ‘how to’ presentation will offer a number of examples and techniques that help to create community and even take advantage of the distance among participants.
Faculty should bring their own laptops for use during this workshop. MAC laptops will be available for those faculty who would like to borrow one.
Thursday September 27, 3:30-4:30 p.m.
This event will be held in ATLAS 200
