Join Innovate ’21: Blended Learning in Adult Education for a special presentation on how to engage students in a remote environment so they deliver their best work!
Presenter: Hilary Lee (Wright College)
Many instructors have mastered the processes associated with blended/hybrid learning. Yet, if you ask them what they worry about most, they feel blended/hybrid models deprive them of opportunities to develop student mastery independent of content. Instructors are unsure how to motivate students to try challenging digital learning activities in a remote environment, incorrectly feeling that a remote/hybrid environment is more detached than traditional face-to-face classroom instruction. This presentation will focus on engaging ways to motivate, encourage, and inspire students. Participants will learn how to accomplish the following goals in a remote setting: Acknowledge the value of a student’s story and tie that story (daily experiences) to content; address "unspoken" apprehensions about the classroom upfront; exploit the powerful tool of laughter; develop “classroom intimacy” with asynchronous discussion boards; and use easy, immediate ways to engage students with 1 on 1 interaction.
