Creating Community in the Online Classroom

Badge: Evidence-Based Teaching

Facilitator: Deborah Walker, Interim Director, Center for Teaching Excellence, USG Office of Faculty Development Series

Students, especially first and second-year students, are very influenced by their classroom environments. They may also feel overwhelmed and disengaged in online classes and not perform well. Faculty new to online teaching also describe the same feelings of disconnect with students in their online courses. While online courses are different from face-to-face and hybrid courses, there are many ways to create a sense of community that matches, or even exceeds, face to face class engagement. During this webinar, we will explore how to develop a positive and supportive online learning environment.
