Programs and Formats
Just as with in-person courses, creating community online with your students will expand their awareness, improve well-being, and increase overall learning. With some planning and a consistent approach, you can foster a strong, productive online community. In this course, you will think more deeply about what “community” means, create materials to help your learners connect with you, and identify strategies to enhance interactions throughout your course.
Explore strategies and develop a plan to foster an equitable and inclusive online learning environment. In this course, you will reflect on how your and your students’ social identities can be relevant when creating a sense of belonging. You will also identify strategies to address challenging situations such as microaggressions. Inclusive teaching practices will help you create a learning space in which students will feel more welcomed, valued, and encouraged to succeed.
