COVID-19 is quickly changing how we work with each other and with our students. It's also changing our ability to connect and intervene with students in a personal, on-campus setting. In this new environment, we need to envision new strategies for building a community beyond the virtual classroom in order to support retention and student success. This webinar will not only introduce our mobile iClicker app and its features, but it will also describe strategies for engaging with students and creating connections using online environments and activities. Walk away with a better understanding of iClicker as well as concrete ideas that you can implement quickly.
