Building Relationships, Community and Communication (Session 3)

Forging a strong community in an online environment can be a daunting task. This presentation outlines ways that educators can create a welcoming, successful classroom community during distance learning.

Although the focus of this presentation is primarily on the importance of building structures for an online environment, much of what is discussed is also pertinent to an in-person learning setting.
