This first 30 minute recorded webinar provides tips for both academic and ‘induction’ type activities for student engagement and motivation but which also apply to building community. These activities can be done synchronously or asynchronously and include “hooks” (mins 2 – 7) or scavenger hunts (mins 15 – 20). The value of trying to recreate the ‘social’/third space’ is outlined (min 21 – 26) and assigning a ‘group’ task which may used initially for community building (minute 26 – 32). Other videos in this 3 part series mentioned in the Online Classroom page.
