Finding a way to keep distance students feeling engaged and connected can be a challenge. Distance students need to interact with educational content, of course, but is that enough? According to the Community of Inquiry (CoI) model (Garrison, Anderson, & Archer, 2000) online education environments require three interdependent elements – teaching, social, and cognitive presence – to generate effective learning. This session will provide attendees with research-based methods of increasing all three presences in online environments so that students interact with each other, the content, and the instructor in ways that move them through critical inquiry and discovery, ultimately deepening the learning experience.
