Humanizing Your Online Course: Creating Learning Communities Online

Description

In this session we will explore the notions of "social presence" and "teaching presence" within an online course environment.   As with face-to-face classes, a strong sense of community in online environments boosts student motivation and encourages intellectual growth and risk taking. But how do we work with the physical distance to help students connect with one another and with us as instructors?  We will invite you to imagine ways to establish your own teaching presence to infuse your course with inviting, multi-sensory content; and consider different ways to build a learning community and maximize a sense of human connection.
