Building an Online Class Community

Class communities are essential to a successful online learning environment. Online community building positively affects the quality of student learning, student engagement and motivation (Flock, 2020).  The Community of Inquiry (CoI) framework shapes meaningful learning experiences through cognitive, social and teaching presence. This workshop highlights practical CoI instructional activities that can build an online class community.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand how the CoI framework can be applied to build a community in your online class
  • Identify CoI instructional activities that lead to an online class community
  • Select at least one activity to implement within your online teaching context
