For students starting a new course it can be intimidating knowing where to start. In both online and face-to-face courses it is important for learners to get to know one another and familiarize themselves with the course’s navigation, resources and tools. This session will introduce strategies you can use in Brightspace to engage learners at the beginning of the course. Examples include news items, scavenger hunts, icebreakers and virtual tours. These strategies will help your students feel connected and informed as they move forward in your course.
