Creatively Engaging Online Students: Models & Activities

Featured Higher Education Presenter:
Dr. Curt Bonk

If you have an interest in online education–where it stands today and how it will look tomorrow–you'll get answers to some important questions from one of the nation’s leading e-learning experts.

Dr. Curt Bonk, Professor of Instructional Systems Technology at Indiana University, is an author, international speaker and respected authority on educational technology. He was recently named “one of the top 10 U.S. e-learning gurus.”

In Creatively Engaging Online Students: Models & Activities, Dr. Bonk will address growing concerns about a lack of engagement in the online classroom. Student dissatisfaction, apathy and, increasingly, attrition threaten to derail the progress of online education at many schools. During this presentation, you’ll discover how to address those problems, and how to build proven engagement-boosters into your online programs. You’ll also:

  • Learn how to address student learning preferences online.
  • Discover ways to motivate students in online environments with Dr. Bonk’s innovative TEC-VARIETY model.
  • Take away a minimum of a dozen new ideas you can use in your classrooms and programs.
  • Get the facts on two unique ways of thinking about teaching and learning in online environments.
  • Hear about a wealth of low-risk, low-cost, low-time activities.
  • Create a vision of what you would like your classroom to be, and develop a plan to achieve it.
  • See how to use the “R2D2 model” for thinking about diverse learning needs.
  • Understand how the example you set online can help (or harm) your students.
  • Learn to build peer and expert feedback into your online classes with techniques like critical friends and cross-institutional mentoring.
  • Find out how to successfully prepare students for the rigors of online learning.
