Creating Community in Your Online Class

Convener: Davy Knittle, CETLI Graduate Fellow, English

In this workshop participants will explore various ways to build a sense of community in class, from the beginning of the semester and throughout. While live sessions will be part of this discussion, we will also consider how asynchronous elements — such as, discussion boards, peer review, feedback and student-created presentations of content — can help students connect to each other, the instructor and the course. The session will also consider the nature of online participation, and how to identify and reach out to students who may be struggling with that.

 Please note: this workshop is intended for returning graduate student instructors, or new graduate student instructors who will not be participating in Penn’s TA Training (Aug. 26-28).

Registration required.

This session is now full.
