WEBINAR: This Course Isn’t Taught by a Robot: Creating Instructor Presence in Online Courses

This session will be presented via webinar. You can participate from anywhere via your computer.
Details for accessing the webinar (a link and password) will be emailed to you immediately after you register. A recording will be made available for those unable to attend.

Some instructors fear that teaching from a distance can create a disconnect between them and their students. In this webinar, Amy Netzel and Marisa Sullivan will discuss ways in which you can bridge this divide. They will share effective (and do-able!) tips and strategies for establishing and maintaining a human presence in your online class, and participants will be encouraged to share tips of their own. 

Marisa teaches Psychology online and chairs Durham Tech's Social Sciences Department. She has 7 years of experience teaching fully online courses and is currently working on a SoTL about increasing social presence in online classes through the use of instructor-created content videos (via Warpwire) and effective communication practices.


Prerequisite: Completion of Intro to Sakai recommended but not required.
