Whether you are using technology as an interactive homework tool or you are teaching entirely online, implementing best practices for motivation and student engagement is key. Just as we develop pedagogy for texts, we need to think about good pedagogy in the online learning environment. There are general practices that can assist in the scaffolding of your students learning to lead to increased comprehension and improved retention. We will spend this hour talking about what materials to assign, when to assign them, using video to illustrate key points and concepts, student engagement, and making meaningful learning experiences for your students using online technology.
