Developing and fostering an online community in your course can increase student engagement and motivate students. In this session we explore practical design and teaching approaches to building a Community of Inquiry (CoI). The CoI is a framework that focuses on facilitating meaningful learning experiences through three presences: cognitive, social, and teaching. Join us as we explore practical instructional strategies based in these 3 presences.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the idea behind a Community of Inquiry
  • Explain each of the three presence necessary for a successful Community of Inquiry
  • Select CoI instructional strategies to enhance social, cognitive and teaching presence in your online course

Facilitated by:

  • Emily Renoe, Senior Educational Consultant, CTLT
