Presenter

Dr. Virginia Thompson, Department of Mathematics & Computer Science

The rapid growth of the internet and its capabilities have attracted higher educational institutions whereas an increasing number of colleges now offer a variety of courses partially or fully online.  The online learning environment challenges instructors to carefully redesign their course delivery strategies so that the absence of face-to-face real-time learning doesn’t hinder opportunities for students to engage in the lesson, actively learning.  The presentation will suggest approaches that can be used in online settings to promote authentic student engagement and active learning. The presenter will share learning modules, assessments materials, technologies uses that will support asynchronous and synchronous settings.
