What do you like most about teaching online?

Surprisingly, I find there are often more opportunities for one-on-one engagement with students in the online environment. Oftentimes, discussions in a traditional on-ground setting are collective in nature, with many voices answering simultaneously. In the online setting, each student voice is distinct. It allows each student to be heard, and it gives me an opportunity to help to bring out their unique interests, concerns and ideas. 

What strategies do you use to keep students engaged?

While it is important to create a sense of continuity throughout the term, it is also equally important to differentiate each week in some way. Student-created videos have become a great way to keep students engaged. We start the term by introducing ourselves to one another by creating video introductions. We continue to build upon concepts with students creating video presentations focused upon real-world application of the topic of the week. This not only changes up the delivery each week, but it also provides an interesting way to bring current and topical information to our class that they may be able to use in their careers.

Do you have any career advice for prospective students?

We so frequently stress the importance of networking to students while they are completing their degree requirements. For many students, online classes provide an opportunity to create a network of colleagues from all over the world. I encourage students to connect with one another while they are enrolled in our classes as a way of building an extensive network of professionals that will last a lifetime.
