Online education: frequently seen as convenient and easy. Not often thought of as inspirational, transformational, or particularly welcoming. The problem is largely one of intentionality. This session will take the Community of Inquiry framework for quality online education and pairs it with a broader perspective of education as an act of hospitality. Participants will learn how the small details and large pedagogical choices we make in online classes frequently prove inhospitable, with clear consequences for student success and retention. Participants will leave with a plan for making intentional choices that incorporate hospitality into their own courses.
