Best Practices for Retention (Extended Deadline)

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 10, 2018

While university administrators have many ways to assess a program’s or department’s effectiveness, student retention is one of the more controversial measures.  Particularly, retention often seems inherently at odds with our roles as college professors since—fairly or not—issues of retention are conflated with concerns over grade inflation and academic rigor.  Yet, as studies show, universities lose students over the first two years of college for a variety of reasons: financial, the absence of strong academic mentoring and peer relationships, the strains of commuting, as well as family pressures and responsibilities that threaten to derail academic pursuits.

 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,
