Tech.ology: Creating Effective Online Discussions Online

As online learning has rapidly become more prevalent, so has the need for intentional strategies to create engaging and effective experiences for learners. At the heart of this digital transformation lies the power of social learning, where collaborative discussions are more than just a pedagogical tool; they become the heartbeat of the virtual classroom.  

As educators, we understand that fostering social connections, critical thinking and knowledge exchange is paramount for our students' success. Join us in this sessions as we delve into the art of creating effective online discussions that not only facilitate social learning but also elevate the quality of online education. We will explore the importance of building community, designing interactive dialogues and sharing experiences that empower faculty to activate social learning to its fullest. Come ready to experience real examples from faculty and hopefully leave with a toolkit full of ideas, ready to implement in your online courses.

*New for Spring 2024: Each workshop will feature an online AND in-person option! Participants are invited to attend sessions via Zoom OR ‘watch party’ style with fellow colleagues in the Creekmore Conference Room of Jones Library.
