How Can I Create a Meaningful Online Learning Experience for Students?

Effective online teaching requires more than just transitioning face-to-face instructional strategies into the online classroom; it requires rethinking the teaching-learning dynamic to embrace students’ active role in the learning process. Approaching online teaching with a learning paradigm allows faculty to shift from content provider and focus on creating and facilitating an engaging learning experience.

This 20-Minute Mentor explores the functional and actionable mindset needed to design an effective online learning experience. Teachers will learn to focus on things that have an actual impact on student learning, or adopt a mindset that prevents wasting time on teaching tasks that don’t have an impact. Additionally, teachers will gain a better understanding of the philosophy that drives effective learning in the online classroom to help shift their mindsets.
