Webinar

Social Presence in Online Learning: A Critical Literacy for Effective Online Experiences - Sept. 7
Recent research suggests that students continue to struggle with isolation and disconnectedness in online courses. This webinar addresses the importance of human connection in online learning and provides participants several easy-to-implement strategies to enhance social presence. The webinar facilitators consider social presence a critical literacy for online learning and, as evidence, they draw from their long-term research with instructors, students, as well as the research from other distinguished experts. Ultimately, because of the connection between student satisfaction and motivation, social presence, and retention rates, it is advantageous for educational institutions to encourage and support their faculty in integrating social presence strategies into their online and blended-learning environments. Webinar participants leave with several examples and strategies they can implement or adapt for their online learning courses and programs. Learn more >
