Webinar: Increasing Engagement in Online Courses

September 25, 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. 
Zoom link: https://slu.zoom.us/j/96430910371 
Presented by Reinert Center Online Teaching Fellows Margaret Benz (School of Nursing) and Katie Devany (School for Professional Studies)

Teaching remotely can make both the instructor and students feel disconnected from one another as well as the content; but it doesn’t have to. Join us as we discuss strategies and technologies to help bridge the gap between the physical and virtual classroom, increase engagement, and decrease frustration.

Reinert Center Webinar: Engaging with Remote/In-Class Students

Friday, October 2, 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

This webinar will specifically address courses that are currently supporting students that are both online and in-class. However, this webinar is open to any faculty regardless of their teaching situation.  Participants will leave with a few actionable strategies to establish, maintain, and sustain student engagement.

Introduction to Online Teaching 

The Introduction to Online Teaching is a fully-online asynchronous seminar that provides a pedagogical foundation for Saint Louis University faculty who are new to the online teaching environment. The seminar provides faculty an opportunity to gain the experience of an online “student” and to experience a fully-online course that has been designed to align with the University’s Online Course Design Rubric while developing a plan for an online course.

Current available sections:

  • October 6 - October 20
  • November 3 - November 17
