Online Teaching Best Practices to Better Engage Students with Quantitative Material
Strandberg, Alicia Graziosi; Campbell, Kathleen
Journal of Instructional Pedagogies, v15 Oct 2014
It is well known engaged students perform better in any course (Nash, 2005, Angelino et. al 2007, Revere and Kovach 2011). However in the online classroom environment engaging students can be a challenge especially with quantitative material. With over 12 combined years of online teaching, the authors have collected useful data that help analyze current courses and discover patterns to enhance future endeavors. This paper establishes a list of best teaching practices specifically related to online teaching in an effort to better engage students and ultimately enhance the online educational experience. The primary focus of this paper looks at courses in which most of the material is quantitative in nature, the tools identified are easily applied across any curriculum. Though some of the tools are self-evident, such as clear and consistent communication, there are others that are less obvious that help to keep a class invigorating and students present.
