Full course description
Are you teaching an online course and hoping to make your class feel more like a cohesive group? This community of practice (CoP) centers on developing a sense of community with online students. We will meet every-other week throughout the semester and discuss a variety of strategies for increasing learner-learner and learner-instructor engagement with student-centered activities, innovative online platforms, and other means to increase peer socialization in online classes. We will invite specialists to speak to the CoP and have roundtable discussions on thematic topics related to online community building. Please join us!
This CoP counts as 3-elective units towards Online Course Design and Online Teaching Certificates. Learn more about eCampus Faculty Development Certificates
