ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM
In this interactive seminar, Dr. Wendy Bass talks about ways to make Internet-based courses more engaging—assessments, content sharing, discussion boards, custom videos, and more—all aimed at getting students to not only interact with the instructor but with each other as well. Drawing on her own experiences, Dr. Bass emphasizes the importance of staying true to your original goals for the course while adaptive to the advantages and disadvantages of teaching remotely. Dr. Bass will also highlight ways to take advantage of media-based resources typically provided to accompany a textbook.
