Creating Engagement in an Online Teaching Environment

So, you’ve been dropped into online teaching, and you’re missing that in-classroom dynamic with students?

Join colleagues to share, brainstorm, and problem-solve ways in which you can regain that “teacher’s high” (a.k.a. feeling that you successfully achieved your teaching goals).

We’ll explore challenges, tools, and strategies, leaving you with a renewed sense of confidence in your (online) teaching.
