Transcript

  • 1. Maximizing the Potential of the Virtual Student
    An excerpt from “Lessons from the Cyberspace Classroom”
  • 2. Use Best Practices from Classroom
    Example:
    If a student is struggling would you have a private tutoring session in your classroom? This could happen via a chat session, email, or a face-to-face session if necessary.
  • 3. Student Absences
    If a student is absent for a week, contact him/her to determine why
  • 4. Student conflict
    Determine how to best deal with conflict, to avoid reduced participation by others in class.
  • 5. Security Breaches
    Students could potentially “hack” into course to “lurk”.
    Students should be notified and enrollment keys/ passwords changed.
  • 6. Log In Frequently
    By logging in several times a week, or at regular intervals that have been posted, the instructor is modeling acceptable participation.
  • 7. Stimulate Thinking
    Ask broad questions that stimulate thinking.
    Instead of “Name and describe 3 social system theories that apply to community development.”
    Ask “What theory of community development did you find yourself relating to most? Why?”
  • 8. Include Humor
    Create a warm, inviting course site by injecting humor if appropriate.
    Builds a strong learning community
  • 9. Post a Welcoming Response
    Students should post an introduction in any course to begin to find common interests or goals. This leads to community building.
