The Virtual Classroom Experience: How to Encourage Engagement

Course Overview

Engaging students in active online learning can be challenging.  This interactive workshop will explore how a number of strategies used in traditional face-to-face environments can be adapted to make learning online more active and engaging.  What keeps people engaged in their online learning?  Is online learning easier than face to face?  In this seminar, Dr Anne Dickinson will share what happened when she was a student, as part of an international cohort, on an online course.  There will be time for discussion and a sharing of tips about helping to keep students engaged in the online classroom.
