Planning for Engagement

Key in the application process is demonstrating planning for student engagement. 86% of GenZ are looking for interaction, engagement, and flexibility in their courses. 

“Taking time to foster relationships with students and being intentional about online learning allows instructors to create a differentiated response with each student.” (Galvin Teich, 2023). 

The Kean University Hybrid Course application process supports faculty as they intentionally design hybrid courses. 

Five ways to build teaching presence in a virtual environment:

  • Personalize your course so students get to know you

  • Do consistent check-ins on their social-emotional health as well as their state of engagement with course assignments

  • Encourage one-on-on meetings by phone or video chat

  • Provide immediate feedback

  • Send video responses
