Brief Abstract

Take a break from the rich idea sharing in the sessions with a virtual coffee talk. Grab a hot beverage and join us for an informal discussion and light networking as a connection between sessions.  Join Christopher Sessums with D2L to discuss these important questions: what an active and engaging online learning experience look like? What elements make it active and engaging? In what ways are you involving students in the learning experience? Join us for an active discussion where we will explore tips and techniques for creating more engaging and meaningful learning experiences for ourselves and our learners.​
