CEE Graduate Student Workshop - Creating Community and Connections in Remote Learning
From Peter Joseph Torres
A Center for Educational Effectiveness (CEE) workshop from January 22, 2021, on Creating Community and Connections in Remote Learning
Description: Building rapport through *instructor-to-student* interactions and facilitating *student-to-student* interactions can help promote student motivation and intellectual risk taking. In face-to-face classes, some of these interactions happen spontaneously through small talk and physical proximity to others. How can we intentionally structure and foster this same sense of connection in remote learning? In this session, participants will learn: (1) how a sense of community can help foster learning; (2) what students say helps them feel connected remotely; and (3) research-based strategies that increase connectedness online.
