CeTEAL: Establishing an Online Instructor Presence (Live Webinar) Bookmark and Share

Apr 11

2 p.m. @ Via Skype
Free but registration required

What qualities does research deem present in an "effective online instructor"? The leading qualities are: social presence, cognitive presence and a teaching presence. These presences ensure that your students feel a connection with you that is comparable to that of a face-to-face class, but perhaps better in some cases. As an added benefit, these strategies are shown to reduce DWF rates and limit the frustration and isolation that many students feel when they take an online course. In this session, we will focus mostly on the social presence.

Participants will:
- Discuss research on how to motivate and retain online students.
- Recognize the importance of a social, cognitive and teaching presence.
- Determine how to integrate the discussed research proven principles in their classroom.
