Engaging Students

What I Do Face to Face

How Can I Do This Remotely


I have full-group discussions

  • Have synchronous full-group discussion in Zoom

  • Have asynchronous discussion using the Forums in AsULearn
  • AppState has a site license for VoiceThread for online video/audio discussions.

  • For more dynamic discussions, consider free online tools like FlipGrid or Discord

I have small-group discussions



I ask small groups to complete projects/assignments together

  • Encourage students to use collaborative tools such as VoiceThread or Padlet to co-create content
  • Make sure group assignments are very clear, either in written form or with a video introduction

I ask students to give feedback on the work of others

I create an inclusive learning environment for all students
