Register for UN Campus Conversations: Teach Smarter: Maximize Your Impact in the Online Classroom

Presented by B. Jean Mandernach, Ph. D., Executive Director of the Center for Innovation in Research and Teaching at Grand Canyon University

The online classroom offers a plethora of instructional opportunities. The ubiquity of the online classroom combined with an ever-evolving list of instructional technologies, limitless educational resources and a plethora of pedagogical tasks (facilitating discussions, grading, feedback, content development, one-to-one communication, etc.) often leaves faculty struggling to prioritize their limited teaching time. While research supports the value and relevance of fostering an engaging, personalized, interactive online classroom, it stops short of explaining HOW to create this experience.

To be effective, faculty need to know more than WHAT to do; they need the skills, abilities and tools to implement pedagogical strategies in an efficient and effective manner. Mandernach’s presentation will examine the use of learning analytics and instructional technologies to:

  • Prioritize teaching tasks
  • Streamline repetitive instructional activities
  • Guide content development
  • Foster more meaningful student interaction
  • All without further burdening faculty workload
