Communicating Online

Communication is critical in an online course.  It is a guiding principle of teaching and learning and yet we lack the ability to see the non-verbal cues from our students.  So how do we connect in the online classroom?  Those of you that have participated in online discussions and have been involved in social media will understand immediately how we can interact in an online environment.  For those of you new to these concepts you will have to trust that you can build a strong sense of community even when you don’t see each other face-to-face.

We will discuss Student-faculty Interaction, Prompt Feedback,  Managing Discussions, Promoting Peer Interaction and more.
