How do we build critical pieces to our online, hybrid, or remote courses? How can my teaching be as effective as I was in the classroom? How can my students feel like they belong to the class and establish a community and trust amongst all participants?
OSCQR [Interaction] best practices in focus during this topic:
*40. [Instructor Presence] Learners have an opportunity to get to know the instructor.[Syllabus / Instructor Bio, Introductions Forum]
