Behind the Screens: Engagement and Retention in Virtual and Online Classes

Keeping students engaged and motivated is one of the challenges of teaching across distance – asynchronous online or virtually via Zoom. Many faculty and students experience screen fatigue, especially in the past few years. This interactive session provides an opportunity to share best practices and highlight theories and methods for engaging students, including

  • how to effectively plan a long Zoom session;
  • adapting face-to-face methods to the online environment;
  • ways to provide thoughtful and constructive feedback efficiently.

Here are the resources for this workshop that was held on Wednesday, July 20, 6:00 – 7:00 pm Central/7:00 – 8:00 pm Eastern via Zoom.
