Abstract

PURPOSE: This session will focus on the effectiveness of online learning for providing students with the skills needed to succeed in the information age. A variety of interactive online teaching methods will be discussed, which are intended to increase student engagement and promote critical thinking skills.

METHODOLOGY: We will evaluate how an online classroom can be used to increase communication between faculty and students, and in turn, enhance academic engagement and achievement. Examples of the various online learning tools, such as the discussion board and chat room, will be discussed and analyzed.

RESULTS: This session will begin with a review of the seven principles of good practice in undergraduate education, as developed by Arthur Chickering and Zelda Gamson. These principles can be applied to teaching and learning in any environment. Emphasis will be placed on the use of web-based online technology, specifically WebCT, and its usefulness in the implementation of good teaching practices in a high school setting.

CONCLUSIONS: Participants in this session will gain the knowledge that will enable them to create and implement online programs that will increase student engagement and promote critical thinking skills.
