What Faculty Can Do to Build Connections and Community
A first step in building classroom communities is fostering connections among learners and between learners and faculty. However, connection is personal before it is communal. This presentation will provide a model for the faculty role in developing and supporting personal and interdependent connections in an online classroom. Data from a qualitative study of online faculty will inform the presentation.
