Course Design

Student Engagement

  • Virtual Office Hours - some ideas on how to hold them
  • Ask them a different informal question every week that connects the course material to their lives.
  • Ask them when they plan to work on the course (and encourage them to find at least 10 hours a week).
  • Mail each student an introductory package with handouts and syllabus
  • Use the Laulima "Site Stats" tool to determine which students are not logging in or spending much time with the course and contact them.
  • give a sample of what a good response looks like
