Small Teaching Online: Practical Strategies to Increase Student Engagement and Learning

Keynote address by Flower Darby, assistant dean of online and innovative pedagogies at Northern Arizona University. 

Online courses present unique challenges for both students and faculty. Small teaching can help. We’ll explore practical, evidence-based changes you can make in your online teaching practice, small but impactful adjustments that result in significant gains in student engagement and learning. Whether you’re new or experienced online faculty, you’ll gain brief learning activities, minor course design modifications, and simple changes to your communication with online students, based on the approach outlined in Small Teaching Online: Applying Learning Science in Online Classes (2019). If you teach in blended and face-to-face formats you’ll also gain strategies to make better use of your Learning Management System to enhance your efforts in the classroom. Together we’ll discover how rewarding online teaching and learning can be.


Darby's book can be found online via the Colgate library
