Online/Hybrid CIG's January Synchronous Learning

 Student Engagement Structures in Online Learning

(AIMS Focal Points: Accountability, Social Presence, Instructional Practices) 

Date: Thursday, January 20, 2022

Time: 12:00 - 1:00 PM ET

One of the more challenging aspects of online learning involves student-to-student dialogue. In this session we will discuss the use of protocols to engage students in authentic and robust dialogue in synchronous and asynchronous environments. You will leave the sessions with classroom examples and, we hope, new ideas to implement in your own classes.
