July 13th, 2018

9:00–10:00—Session 1: Motivating Students

  • Facilitated by Anna Turner, Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning
    Learning results from what the student does to learn, and students’ motivation determines, directs, and sustains what they do to learn. In this session, we’ll explore the elements of motivation and strategies to promote student motivation and behavior.
10:10–11:00—Session 2: Classroom Climate
  • Facilitated by Julie Donnelly and Anna Turner, Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning
    Students’ current level of development interacts with the social, emotional, and intellectual climate of the course to impact learning. In this session, we’ll examine what it means to have a supportive environment, including social, emotional, and intellectual aspects.
11:10–12:00—Session 3: Student Engagement in the Online Environment
  • Facilitated by Denise Lowe, Corrinne Stull, and Anchalee Ngampornchai, Center for Distributed Learning
    In the face-to-face environment, we can often rely on our presence to encourage student engagement, but we must be deliberate in an online environment. In this session, we’ll discuss how to leverage the online environment to promote student engagement.
12:00–1:00—Lunch
