Engaging students in online learning

One of the major challenges to emerge from the shift to online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic has been the engagement of students in learning in the online environment.

While there has been an extensive history of research and practice in online and distance learning, the mode of online learning can be difficult and demotivating for many students. In this workshop, we will discuss what we can learn from the history of research and practice tells us about online learning and how it can be applied in the new reality that is emerging post-pandemic.
