Student Engagement Consultancy Sessions from Friday, Feb 14

The Tech Ambassadors recognize that student engagement is a persistent area of interest for teachers in virtual school. In this peer-to-peer sharing session, we brainstormed strategies you’ve used to keep students engaged during virtual school. We took turns sharing them out using a group whiteboard tool and grouped them by category. Then, we discussed the options and clarified how we can use them in our own courses.

When you return to NCPA, the IT department will collect your laptop – in pristine condition, please! – and get you reimbursed. Read on for details.
