Student Engagement in Online Learning: What Works and Why

1 hour

Christopher Sessums, Director of Academic Affairs, D2L
Dr. Darcy White, Instructional Designer, D2L


How would you characterise today’s university students? Empowered? Confident? Self-motivated? They want all of their classes to be easy yet expect that most will be hard. Most will not speak up unless called upon. Most want, need, require their instructors to tell them exactly what to do. Keeping students involved, motivated, and actively learning is challenging educators across the globe, yet good advice on how to accomplish this is not always readily available. In this webinar, Dr. Christopher Sessums, Director of Academic Affairs, and Dr. Darcy White, Instructional Designer at D2L will offer faculty members and instructional designers evidence-based tips, strategies, and techniques to motivate, connect with, and engage online learners.

Key topics will include:

  • Modeling the behaviours you expect to see in your learners
  • Communication strategies
  • Active learning techniques
  • Keeping students motivated
