Student Classroom Engagement: RESOURCES & RECOMMENDATIONS Free online registration

HOW can we enhance the quality of student/faculty interaction in online sessions within hybrid and online courses?  

Preparatory Online Survey Pls take 2 minutes right now to help shape this session.  Recommend a RESOURCE OR STRATEGY to enhance student classroom engagement that addresses some of these CHALLENGES we identified Sept 28:

  1. Learning Styles - Variety
  2. Expectations of Students’ Willingness to "Engage"
  3. Students' Work/Life Schedules
  4. Students Late for Course Sessions
  5. Guidance for Students re: Constructive, Active Participation (Engagement)
  6. Undergraduate Students NOT “Stimulated” by Class Discussion/Activity
  • [Ubiquitous(?) Mobile Devices]
We'll discuss resources and recommendations such as:
  • Polleverywhere and other Cross-Platform Synchronous Feedback options:
  • Course Syllabus
  • Grading
  • Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATs) Online?
  • NSSE, Definitions for Student Classroom Engagement

Guests: James Stenerson, Pace University; John Munro, University of the Virgin Islands

Moderators: Steve Gilbert, Sally Gilbert, Beth Dailey, TLT Group

This session is a follow-up to the FridayLive! of Sept 28, 2018, re:  CHALLENGES to Student Classroom Engagement.  We also introduced NSSE=National Survey of Student Engagement 
Excerpt: “The NSSE survey, launched in 2000 and updated in 2013, assesses the extent to which students engage in educational practices associated with high levels of learning and development. The questionnaire collects information in five categories: (1) participation in dozens of educationally purposeful activities, (2) institutional requirements and the challenging nature of coursework, (3) perceptions of the college environment, (4) estimates of educational and personal growth since starting college, and (5) background and demographic information.”

Sample Discussion Questions:

  • How define, assess quality of student-faculty interaction?  Especially, as reported by students?
  • How are more traditional notions of academic rigor challenged by concerns for student-faculty interaction?
