When colleges made the abrupt shift to online learning last spring, the loss of personal connection struck both students and teachers alike. How can colleges continuing in the virtual space this fall create a more intimate and engaging experience?
That’s one of the pressing questions our panel of teaching and online-learning experts will address in this virtual forum.
Join us as we examine how colleges can make the online experience more human, help students form bonds with one another, and better translate faculty-student interaction to the computer screen.
The discussion will explore questions like:
- What unique opportunities for building personal connection do online courses offer?
- How can colleges and faculty members design online courses to be equitable?
- How will current circumstances and adaptations change professors’ approach to teaching even post-pandemic?
The panel will include:
- Michelle Pacansky-Brock, Community-College Educator, Online-Faculty Developer, and Author of Best Practices for Teaching with Emerging Technologies
- Viji Sathy, Teaching Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
- Mike Truong, Executive Director, Office of Innovative Teaching and Technology, Azusa Pacific University
