Teaching an effective and engaging synchronous online course can be a difficult task. Live synchronous class sessions, where participants are logged in and interacting at the same time, can provide a high-touch element previously missing from online instruction. However, it can be difficult to strategically structure an active learning environment during synchronous instruction.
How do instructors incorporate active learning strategies synchronously?
This 20-Minute Mentor offers a foundational understanding of synchronous instruction and offers
several techniques for enhancing synchronous interaction by focusing on lesson planning, enacting, and assessing active strategies.
Upon completion of this program, you’ll be able to:
• Understand how to holistically design a synchronous course experience
• Discover strategies to enhance class time and student interaction during synchronous instruction
• Learn how to create an active climate in an asynchronous course
