Boosting student engagement: Easy tactics and tools to connect in any modality

Boosting student engagement: Easy tactics and tools to connect in any modality Online

In this interactive session, two educational developers from MSU's Center for Teaching and Learning Innovation will demonstrate and lead participants through several easy ways to boost engagement in courses of any modality (synchronous in-person, blended, hybrid; asynchronous). Using zoom chat, google docs and slides, word clouds, D2L, and other MSU tech tools, we will focus on low-barrier ways that instructors can connect with students, help students connect with each other, organize whole-class or small-group brainstorms, and translate effective in-person activities for hybrid or online classrooms. Participants can share tactics that have worked in their own courses. The session will conclude with a QnA and connection to further MSU resources from the CTLI. No prior experience with these technologies is required.

The content in this workshop will be primarily targeted to classroom instructors and settings, but tools and strategies are relevant for adaptation and use by any educator in any context.
