Best Practices: Building a Learning Community in an Online Course (Course 4)
Instructors: Marianne Bauer, Sirui Wang and Greg Wells
Dates: Mar. 20-Apr. 9
Location: Facilitated online
Engagement can be one of the most important indicators for a successful online class experience, and it can be accomplished by building a learning community. In this short course, you will explore practices and discover tools that encourage three types of engagement: student to instructor, student to student and student to content. Additionally, you will discover techniques and procedures for successfully managing and facilitating an online course through building your learning community.
You might be interested in this course if:
- You have some experience as an online developer/student/instructor.
- You have some experience with a learning management system.
- You’re interested in learning how to improve your online facilitation skills.
This class is part of a series of TILT short courses on best practices for designing, developing and facilitating online courses. The courses can be taken in any order. However, if you don’t have much experience designing and developing an online course, hands-on experience in a learning management system or previous online teaching experience, you may want to take Course 1 (which will be offered this summer) before taking Course 3 or Course 4.
