Summer Sandbox Series: Creative Online Course Designing
Designing for online collaboration and engagement

Designing for Online Collaboration and Engagement


In May 2020, more that 4,500 members of staff at 1,500 higher education institutions in the US were surveyed about their experience of making the shift from face-to-face to online teaching[1]. According to this survey, two of the biggest challenges encountered by academics were maintaining students’ motivation and designing effective collaborative tasks online. This workshop will explore strategies for enhancing students’ cognitive as well as social online presence with the aim of maintaining students’ motivation throughout your course.
