Whitney Kilgore - Designing the Learner Experience: 7 Keys to Unlock the Human Element in Online Courses
Students have more options than ever before when choosing an online program and are becoming more savvy shoppers. Differentiating a program from others in the market will increasingly rely upon the design of the student experience. If you are looking for ways to increase student satisfaction and engagement in your course or program then a focus on the human element is essential. In this presentation, Dr. Kilgore outlines findings from her research on humanizing online teaching and learning, and shares quick, easy wins to create a more connected learning experience for students.

Following the presentation, Dr. Kilgore will conduct a workshop from 1:00-2:00pm in NH 246.
