On Friday September 19th the Global Campus hosted 4 faculty members who shared their expertise about engaging students using a variety of methods.  Check out the videos of their talks below.

Phil Mixter - A Clinical Associate Professor in Molecular Biology, shares strategies to build a strong learning community that supports student engagement. His hybrid course blends online learning, at-home laboratory experiments, and an on-campus “boot-camp” lab. He also gets students thinking about how to judge credible and reliable online resources.

Samantha Swindell - A Clinical Associate Professor in Psychology, offers a thought-provoking counterpoint to the other presenters’ with her technology-oriented ideas to increase engagement in large enrollment online and on-campus classes.

Sheila Converse - A Clinical Associate Professor in Music, shares her “moment of truth” when she realized that many students did not know how to learn. She’ll discuss insights, strategies, and tips that help students achieve academic success.

Andy O'Fallon - A Clinical Associate Professor in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, explains ways to get students more involved in large enrollment classes using social media, engineering apps, and the LMS. These tools help to increase collaborative exchange while fostering independent thought and creativity.
