Social science tells us again and again that fostering a positive learning community is crucial for student success and engagement. As online instructors, our role extends beyond the transmission of knowledge to creating an environment where students feel connected, supported, and motivated. Below, we’ll explore effective strategies for cultivating a positive online learning community and building the kinds of meaningful connections among students that facilitate their success.

Icebreakers and Introductions

bewakoof-com-official-mG-HdjYiPtE-unsplashBegin the online learning journey by incorporating icebreakers and introductions. Encourage students to share a bit about themselves, their interests, and what they hope to gain from the course. This simple step humanizes the virtual space and sets the foundation for a supportive community. We share some specific icebreaker activities in our two blog articles: 5 Creative Icebreaker Assignments for the Online Classroom and Five (More) Creative Icebreakers for the Online Classroom. Some of our favorite conversation starters include: “What is the best advice you’ve ever received?” and “What are you the biggest fan of?”

Discussion Forums and Collaborative Activities

Create opportunities for interaction through discussion forums and collaborative activities. Pose thought-provoking questions, facilitate group discussions, and assign group projects. This not only enhances the learning experience but also promotes teamwork and a sense of shared goals among students. Discussion forums not only provide important community-building opportunities, but they are considered a vital learning space, especially in the asynchronous classroom. If assigned readings are what is learned and handed-in assignments are proof of what was learned, then discussion forums are where the actual learning happens.

Virtual Office Hours and One-on-One Check-Ins

linkedin-sales-solutions-6ie6OjshvWg-unsplash (2)Establishing virtual office hours provides students with dedicated time to connect with you individually. Encourage students to schedule one-on-one check-ins to discuss concerns, seek clarification, or simply chat about their academic journey. Personalized attention can make a significant impact on their sense of belonging. Simply knowing that you are approachable and available can go a long way toward a student feeling empowered to reach out for help. As one student says in a RateMyProfessors review: “[Professor] is hands down one of the absolute best professors I have had. She is great at feedback, getting back to you, and shows real care and compassion.”

Celebrating Achievements and Milestones

Acknowledge and celebrate both individual and collective achievements. Whether it’s a great discussion post, a successful group project, or reaching a particular milestone in the course, recognizing and celebrating accomplishments reinforces a positive learning culture. There are several places where this can unfold – private communications to students or groups, general, positive celebrations in weekly wrap-up announcements, and genuine expressions of gratitude from the instructor in course start and course end communications. Positive momentum propels students eagerly and confidently into their next course and provides the stamina and motivation needed to reach graduation. In many ways, then, positive expressions of celebration and reveling in achievements serves as an important retention tool.

Encourage Peer Support and Mentorship

dan-meyers-hluOJZjLVXc-unsplashPromote a culture of peer support and mentorship within the online community. Pair more experienced students with newcomers or encourage collaborative learning partnerships. This not only builds a sense of camaraderie but also enhances the learning experience through shared knowledge and perspectives. For example, programming instructor might establish a mentorship program where seasoned coders guide newcomers through real-world coding challenges, resulting in accelerated skill development and earned confidence. A language instructor could institute a “language exchange program” where members proficient in one language partner with those aiming to improve their skills in that language. This not only provides an opportunity for cultural exchange but also creates a supportive space for learners to practice and receive constructive feedback.

Incorporate Student Feedback

Actively seek and incorporate student feedback. Give students a voice in shaping their own learning community by implementing changes based on their suggestions. This not only demonstrates that their opinions matter but also fosters a sense of ownership and investment in the learning process. Indeed, students care when their instructor cares and nothing expresses that care more than active listening, genuine attention, and a willingness to learn and grow, change and adapt.

Building a positive online learning community requires intentional effort and a commitment to creating a supportive environment. By incorporating these strategies, educators can cultivate connections among students, enhance engagement, and contribute to a thriving online learning experience. Remember, the strength of the online community lies in the relationships we nurture and the shared journey of learning we embark upon together.

Posted by & filed under Online Teaching Resources.

shane-rounce-DNkoNXQti3c-unsplash (1)Online programs recruit students from all over the globe – a wonderful thing, as the diversity of thought, experience, background, and culture lends itself to enriching classroom discussion. Embracing a diverse student population requires mindful teaching, and an eye toward ensuring that students of all backgrounds, abilities, and experience are set up for success.

Thus, inclusive teaching practices are not only a moral imperative but also a necessity for fostering effective and equitable online learning environments. As educators, it is our responsibility to ensure that every learner, regardless of their background, abilities, or preferences, can thrive in the virtual classroom. Below, we’ll explore the importance of inclusive online teaching and provide practical strategies to meet the diverse needs of your students.

Understanding Diversity in Online Learning:

Diversity in the online classroom extends far beyond cultural and ethnic backgrounds. It encompasses a wide range of factors, including Learning styles, physical/cognitive ability, language proficiency, and access to technology.

While neuroscientists have largely debunked the notion of learning styles, it is a truism that students tend to prefer certain modes of acquiring information. And it is true that if we come at students in a variety of ways (visual, auditory, kinesthetic, or reading/writing, etc.) that we will light up more lobes of their brain, which allows it to make more and stronger neural connections – increasing memory and recall. So, offering students varied and engaging learning material that they can see, read, watch, hear, and even touch/hold/manipulate is a terrific way to reach everyone.

joyce-busola-h7pDENTfYvU-unsplashSome students may have disabilities or unique cognitive and physical needs that require specialized support, such as screen readers, captioning, audio recordings of textbooks or adapted materials. Schools who develop their online courses with an instructional design/subject matter expert team typically bake these accommodations into their course design. But if you are developing your own online course, you’ll want to make sure that every resource you provide is accessible to all. Consultation with your school’s disability resource center can help point you in the right direction.

Students for whom English is not their first language may require additional language support to understand and engage with the course content. Identifying these students and making sure to not unfairly penalize them for grammatical/typographic errors is important, as well as making sure you have resources to provide these students, either through the university or outside of it.

While all online students will need access to a computer and the internet to participate in online courses, not all students have access to specialized technology, including high-speed internet or the latest and greatest (and expensive!) devices. Ensuring your materials are accessible on a variety of devices and internet connections is crucial.

Further, not all students are comfortable using social media; some students avoid it given negative experiences they’ve had with online bullying or stalking. It is best not to require use of social media platforms in your classrooms (i.e., requiring your students to sign up for any social media platform to earn a grade in your class). But if you really want to, you’ll need to provide alternative options for those who have good reason not to participate.

Eight Strategies for Inclusive Online Teaching:

Below, we’ll briefly consider eight strategies you’ll want to consider as you create and/or teach an online course that embraces, accommodates, and is inclusive of learner diversity:

  1. Accessible Course Materials: Provide accessible documents, videos, and multimedia content. Use alt text for images, closed captions for videos, and ensure text is readable by screen readers. Embrace UDL principles to design courses that are accessible to all learners from the start, reducing the need for individual accommodations.
  2. Flexible Assessment Options: Offer a variety of assessment methods, allowing students to showcase their knowledge in ways that suit their abilities, talents, and modes of engagement. Consider alternatives to traditional exams, such as audiovisual projects, interactive class discussions, or dynamic portfolios.
  3. john-schnobrich-FlPc9_VocJ4-unsplash (3)Clear Communication: Use plain language and organize content logically. Offer written and spoken instructions and encourage students to ask questions if anything is unclear.
  4. Collaborative Learning Opportunities: Create spaces for peer interaction and collaboration, which can help diverse groups of students learn from each other and build a sense of community.
  5. Support Services: Provide information on support services available to students, such as disability services, language assistance, and technical support.
  6. Regular Feedback: Offer constructive feedback on assignments and assessments, focusing on improvement and growth rather than solely on grades and things that are “wrong” or “need to be fixed”. Be mindful of your tone – avoid sounding condescending and consider that level of readiness will vary from student to student.
  7. Cultural Sensitivity: Recognize and respect cultural differences and avoid assumptions about students’ backgrounds or experiences.
  8. Professional Development: Continually educate yourself on inclusive teaching practices and stay up to date with accessibility standards and technologies.

Inclusive online teaching is an ongoing commitment to creating an equitable learning environment. By embracing diversity and implementing inclusive practices, you can create an online learning environment where all students feel valued, supported, and empowered. Remember that inclusivity is not just a goal; it’s a fundamental aspect of effective teaching in the digital age.
