This session takes participants through a case view of free online resources used to engage students in creating community by offering choice, promoting synchronous gatherings and facilitating scholarly dialogue.  We will share tools for soliciting preferences and availability, scheduling, and conducting online meetings along with strategies for distributed responsibility. 

The case experience will walk participants through the evolution of a community built across students situated in multiple time zones, with disparate interests and backgrounds at various stages in their studies and share their reactions to the process and its impact on their learning experiences.  From coordinating meetings, to researching learning to collaborating on projects, studies, documents and presentations, the case structure illustrates the flow and interconnection between these ‘apps’.  It will include a matrix of tool options and a moment for participants to consider how to leverage these tools to enhance the scholarly community in their own courses and contexts. 

NOTE:  Login instructions for the session will be sent in the Registration Confirmation Email. Please check your Junk folder as sometimes these emails get trapped there. We will also send an additional login reminder a few hours prior to the start of the event.

REALLY IMPORTANT NOTE: You can become a TLT Group Individual Member for one year for $75.  You'll be supporting just the sort of event you just registered for.  Please join us!
