About the Conversation Series
The Office of Digital Learning & Inquiry (DLINQ) is convening a year-long conversation series for faculty to explore and address pedagogical and technical issues related to teaching and learning online. As Middlebury moves into more hybrid and online learning opportunities, these conversations will help to prepare faculty to take advantage of these opportunities, while ensuring that we are designing courses and programs that reflect our unique values and approaches to learning. You can find information and artifacts from earlier events in the conversation series archived on our Teaching Hybrid & Online page.
Continuing the Conversation: Building a Community of Learners Online
Developing a sense of community among teachers and learners in online spaces is central to successful online learning experiences. Instructor presence plays a critical role in developing and fostering community. In this conversation, we invite Dr. Bonnie Stewart, Assistant Professor of Online Pedagogy & Workplace Learning, University of Windsor, to help us explore specific strategies that instructors can use to develop and sustain a community of learners in online learning spaces.
