2:00 PM Online Course Design Strategies to Increase Learning Engagement: A Meaningful Hands-On Exercise for Educators

Online education is well established in academia; however, the effectiveness of course design on student engagement remains uncertain. To deliver a better online education, students should be engaged though-out the learning process. The workshop provides guidance for educators interested in integrating effective learning technologies to support their online courses, expect to achieve enhanced student engagement as well as more efficient classroom management. This hands-on experience will focus on

  • Different design strategies and tools for higher levels of learning and how to effectively incorporate learning technologies to support synchronous, asynchronous and flipped learning, as well as the integration of planned activities to enhance learning. How can pedagogy be woven into the delivery of online & e-Learning
  • Applying the “Flipped Classroom” methodology to online course design- how this methodology can increase learning outcomes and engagement students 
  • Explore key reasons students can become disengaged with online & e-learning and how you can avoid them
  • Deliver practical takeaways to implement into your organisations

12:00 PM Online Technologies for Engaged Learning: Can Learning Engagement be Virtually Boosted?

Retention rates for classes taught in hybrid or online education modes are more complex than classes taught in a face-to-face setting. Educators should engage students early and often, using different learning strategies customized to sessions content, class size and students' knowledge. Appropriately integrated technologies can be used to foster student engagement, facilitate the learning triangle integration and collaboration, and make course content come alive. Such integration is essential for students to learn from one another and expand their knowledge base together.  

This presentation presents key concepts of synchronous, asynchronous and flipped learning as methods of engaging students with the goals of enhancing the learning dialogue and increasing learner’s engagement
