Effective Online Teaching Tip 5

Model participation and discussion techniques for students.

Pay attention to the tone of the messages that you post, as you will be setting the course tone. Try to be both professional and informal, establishing an environment of mutual respect and comfort while avoiding any sense of intimidation. Being inclusive and making connections between students’ comments will model this type of discussion behavior and attitude for your students as well.
