Sharing Effective Practices to Enhance Student Engagement in DL

Feedback form is now closed.

In this facilitated online 'table talk', we will collaboratively discuss and share effective practices in Distributed Learning with a focus on instructional, communication, and inclusive assessment strategies. Our table talk is based on our own experiences within our courses in our respective DL contexts, as well as recommendations from Amanda's recent masters' research. We will share some of the strategies we have implemented into our courses to enhance the self-efficacy, feeling of connectedness and overall success of our students. The session participants will be invited to constructively share their favourite strategies, tips and tech tools which have helped them to overcome challenges, support their students, and/or to become more successful DL teachers. This interactive guided session will provide attendees the chance to grow professionally from each other's teaching and learning experiences in DL with the aim to enhance student engagement.

Note to the session participants: we will be using a collaborative padlet for this session - if you'd like your name to appear automatically in your posts / comments, please sign up (for free) in padlet.com prior to the session.
