Mi Coursa es su Coursa 

In the same way we would welcome someone into our homes, we would be wise to welcome students in our online classrooms.  Online environments can be welcoming (videos), considerate (organized), and hospitable (more short video reminders and announcements).   Instructors set the tone for the semester. How did you welcome your students?  How did you make them feel like they belong in your class?  How did you host them and help them “find their way around”? 

Guest Speakers: Emily Gilbert and Andrea McCourt

Making the Course their Own
