It is natural for students to lose steam toward the end of the semester in a traditional course or in a fully online course. Multimodal teaching, faculty presence, and regular student/faculty communication are game changers to sustain student engagement. This session will focus on providing you practical techniques (gifts, if you will) that you can incorporate right away into your course, no matter the format. Each tip is based on best practices and sound educational learning theory, but the presentation will not be theoretical. Leave this session with some new tools in your pocket.
