For students to be active, engaged learners, faculty need to create a supportive learning environment that encourages students to engage with course materials, reflect on their learning, and engage with others as they learn new concepts and skills. Whether you are teaching face-to-face, blended, or online, this interactive, hands-on session will provide a number of strategies to encourage students’ active learning with materials, with others, and with their own learning. Following best practices for engaged learning, participants will work collaboratively to develop activities that increase student engagement—beyond in-class and online discussions—that they can implement in their own courses and that are aligned to student learning outcomes. To get the most benefit from this session, participants are encouraged to bring a course syllabus or student learning outcome to share and discuss as we consider ways to help students actively engage in their learning.

I think that online discussions, done well, are the heart of any online course. However, I would love to learn about alternatives that maintain a sense of engagement and community while encouraging learning.
