Engaging Diverse Student Cohorts: Did Someone Say Completely Online?

C. Moore and L. Signor

Abstract—Student and teacher engagement is an ongoing issue in online learning environments. Specifically demonstration and assessment of evidenced generic skill development of students is problematic. Most practitioners rely on basic tools for facilitating online such as discussion boards and chat rooms. This paper builds on the latter method and is presented in an illustrative case study analysis. The case is of a nationally recognised undergraduate online program which provides educational practitioners with tangible examples illustrating the implementation of pedagogical concepts and theories for online teaching.

Index Terms—Diversity, generic skills, higher education, online learning, student-centred discussion.
