This presentation will explore strategies for how students engage both with the course materials as well as each other in both fully online and hybrid teaching spaces to create a successful online learning environment for both the students and instructor. While technology can create barriers for learning and classroom interaction, it can also create new ways for students and instructors to work together.

Students in online and hybrid courses need additional guidance to succeed in the online learning environment (Crawley and Fetzner 7). Teaching in online spaces requires strategic planning for student engagement as a vital component of the course design. This presentation will approach that strategy while incorporating perspectives of active learning, peer-based learning and universal design for learning while focusing activities at different stages of a course with the stages of group dynamics.

The focus will be on creating an environment of peer-based learning, where students share learning in multiple ways. The online learning space is viewed as part of “a collaborative learning process in which the instructor and learner are partners in building the knowledge base” (Conrad and Donaldson 6). Participants will be shown a model and learn strategies for peer-based engagement to incorporate into a whole course design to engage students from the moment they gain access to the course, until the course is finished.
