Blended Courses: increase the effectiveness of communications between you and your students.
The research and practice indicate that effective communication and interaction channels have to be established between students and instructor beyond the “walls” of traditional classroom. How will instructors motivate students to learn and employ different communication modalities to support their learning?
This presentation will discuss the challenges and barriers to engaging students in productive and continued dialogue, and assess strategies and approaches to design and support a workable system of communications. Victor will provide recommendations and suggestions on how to integrate the different modes of communication in the regular classroom to increase quality of instruction.
