Encourage instructors to add these strategies their online courses to increase student engagement and improve learning.
Many instructors are redesigning their courses for the online space. It's can be overwhelming to think about how to structure the course materials, how to engage students, and how to select online tools to make the process manageable. But, instructors don't have to do it all at the same time. By adding a few active learning strategies to their existing online courses, they can increase student engagement, encourage collaboration, and improve learning and retention.
In this 45-minute course, participants will identify 9 places in their online course where they can integrate active learning strategies. Then, they'll explore 10 different flipped and active learning strategies they can immediately apply to their online course.
Each strategy is informed by research, grounded in theory, and designed for practical application. Participants will receive a resources packet featuring a list of flipped and active learning strategies, planning templates, and recommended technology tools and resources they can use to create engaging online learning experiences for their students.
At the end of this mini-course, participant will be able to:
- Identify 9 places in their online course where they can easily implement active learning strategies without needing to redesign or restructure the whole course.
- Explore 10 different active learning strategies they can use in synchronous and asynchronous online environments.
