 One of the greatest challenges in teaching online is developing meaningful student interaction. In evaluations of online classes, students consistently indicate that student/teacher interaction and student/student interaction can be improved. How do we either go beyond the traditional online tools such as the discussion board or extend those online tools to increase the interaction and sense of community in an online course? This roundtable seeks 10 minute presentations that highlight innovative projects to build connections among students, instructor, and content in the dislocated space of the online classroom. Please submit 250 word proposals by June 8, 2018, to Rich Hancuff, rhancuff@misericordia.edu.
