Shouting into the void? Student engagement in the online synchronous classroom

28 April 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm AEST

Presentation and discussion led by Dr Katie Freund, Australian National University

Why don’t students turn on their cameras in online classes? Can we (should we?) find ways to make them? Katie will lead us in an exploration of strategies for student engagement in Zoom, Teams meetings and other online synchronous spaces, and how to equitably encourage a cameras-on culture in designing and hosting these sessions.

Topics for this webinar will include:

  • factors that make students reluctant to turn on their video and/or audio
  • emotional and practical impacts of blank screens for teachers
  • student engagement – is it about visibility?
  • tips for classroom tasks for Zoom rooms

What has your experience been, and that of the teachers you support? How does this student choice affect learning and teaching in inclusive spaces? Join us for a deep-dive discussion into this post-pandemic phenomenon.

We look forward to seeing you – just go to at the time of the session.
