This webinar will explore working with online students as research assistants and in the online or blended classroom. We will discuss getting creative so that you can conduct your research in an online environment. Ideas are directed towards working with online undergraduates, but many of the ideas and techniques will translate to online graduate students as well. In particular, we will briefly introduce: the need for research with online students, introduction to online students, communicating and mentoring online students, techniques and methodologies that work online for research.

JoystickGamification in Online Teaching & Learning

Wednesday, Feb. 15

2-3 pm via Zoom

Level up! New Achievement Unlocked! Are you ready to proceed? Games have driven the way that kids grow up with technology. Using game elements has become more pervasive in everything from earning coupons at Target to awards for exercise on apps like Runkeeper. These strategies promote participation, motivation, and community building. But what does it look like when we begin to work these strategies into teaching? This webinar will explore basic concepts in gamification and look at a few examples for how gaming strategies can be of value to online teaching and course design.
