While most experienced teachers understand the importance of teaching students how to effectively express themselves using the language of the content area, very few of us actually know how to help our students learn by listening well to their peers and instructors. Now that many teachers have transitioned to remote and online teaching environments, we face new challenges to engagement and communication with and between learners.

This Magna Online Seminar will share proven strategies that help students learn how to show one another—and the teacher—that they are listening and engaged in the live remote classroom. The strategies shared in this online seminar will help students become more interested in the classroom content, in one another, and in the wider field of knowledge being shared.
