Themed Conversation: Tips for Active Learning in Online Environments
The Themed Conversation Series is a series of noon-hour discussions, hosted by the Teaching Academy once a month, which explore a range of topics related to teaching in higher education. These conversations give participants an opportunity to share experiences, explore ideas, and dialogue with peers about a variety of teaching issues. Are you wondering how instructors maximize student engagement and collaboration using online spaces? Tips provided in this document supported our conversation on active learning in online environments and helped us lead a conversation about designing dynamic and participatory online learning experiences.
