QM Standard 5 – Course Activities and Learner Interaction

Course activities should facilitate and support student interaction and engagement. Learning activities should support active learning, as well as student-to-student and instructor-to-student interactions. Connecting activities to the real world drives student interest, engagement and retention. The expectation for student participation and interaction should be clearly explained. Feedback should be personal and timely.

You can refer to Teaching Online Pedagogical Repository (TOPR) for suggestions on learner interactions in online/hybrid courses.

There are a number of tools in Blackboard you can use for course activities and learner interactions. How do you know which tool is right for you? Use the information in the Pick the Right Tool for the Job blog post for guidance.

There are many ways you can include course activities and learner interactions in your Blackboard course. A few examples of tools for activities and interactions are available for review.

Blackboard workshops are routinely offered through the Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Faculty Development (CAT+FD). Check the CAT+FD events page for our current workshop offerings. Individual Blackboard help is also available by scheduling a one-on-one session with Janice Florent.
