USG Corequisite Virtual Workshop - Building Community Online

USG Corequisite Virtual Workshop - Building Community Online

April 29, 2020

Building community among students in learning support is thought to play an important role in the engagement and success of students and supports their sense of belonging and self-efficacy. Making these connections in a remote setting demands different strategies and approaches to those that faculty have often mastered for their in-person courses.

Featuring Sonia Ford-Petch, department chair and professor of mathematics at Midland College in Midland, Texas, this conversation will provide an opportunity to learn best practices in  online settings and to share your work and experiences. 

Dr. Ford-Petch has been teaching mathematics face-to-face and online at the collegiate level for over 19 years. Dr. Ford-Petch’s research focuses on best practices in teaching and learning in an online environment with an emphasis on increasing students’ feelings of connectedness.
