Ask a question from your peers to help you in your professional work. Seek different points of view on a topic that interests you. Start a thought-provoking conversation about a hot, current topic. Encourage your peers to join you in the discussion, and feel free to facilitate the discussion.

La inteligencia Emocional en el Aula Virtual

Considero que una de las habilidades que deben estar presentes en los docentes es la gestión emocional. 

Learn by teaching

I have found that having students teach some of the didactic, they learn better, how about you? 

Absent Students

What methods do people use to engage online students? I am active in their discussion, send individual and group messages, and hold live Zoom sessions but still there are a large number of students who simply don't engage. 

Course Content

This program is a great refresher.

Teaching Online learners

I learned many valuable tools, especially advantages of asynchronous learning, as I had a myopic view that synchronous learning is always the best, not taking into account that students may be located in different geographical areas with different time zones.


I have enjoyed this platform 

Active learning

Several strong ideas for active learning strategies in this course. 

Recorded Sessions

Should recorded sessions be made available to students? Would it hinder attendance? Should recorded sessions only be provided with exceptional reasons?

Cameras on in Zoom?

With the proliferation of Zoom live instruction, should students always have their cameras on during sessions?

Group Size in Synchronous Learning

Does anyone have any recommendations on the optimal group size for a synchronous on-line learning environment? Big enough where there is meaningful interaction, but not so big where learners can just check out without being noticed.

Discussion Group Participation

How do other instructors encourage and manage discussion groups to help ensure that even natural introverts, or students with busy schedules, take the time to participate in the group and provide, at least occasional, thoughtful input to the discussion?

Teaching as a Second Job - How Do You Manage it?

I am interested in hearing from others who teach, either online or in traditional setting, as a second gig. Specifically, how do you budget your time between your "day job" and your teaching job. I am a busy lawyer, and it is difficult to stay on top of what I need to manage for students, especially feedback and grading. All thoughts and comments are welcome.

Last Minute Turning in Assignments

How to convince a student that the best way of success is to keep current with assignments and syllabus.  Last minute turning in assignments and cramming is good for short term, but the goal should be for consistiency.

It is important to be supportive to all students espcially in the online setting
