Class Design & Teaching Strategies: Online Instruction Support
Online, remote, or hybrid classes should create a rich learning environment and establish meaningful connections. As our panelists discuss, students come for the content but stay for the community. When instruction is online or goes online, focus on class outcomes to guide your instruction. Help students understand that they’re still learning through employing meta-cognitive processes. Strategies our panelists have learned from English as a Second Language (ESL) and content instruction, research, and class design can be applied broadly.
