Effective Community Building & Communication
Building a strong sense of community in a virtual or flexed classroom isn’t impossible. It just requires deliberate action on the part of the instructor—and constant attention over the course of the semester. The upside is that, as much time as this may take, we know that a strong sense of community helps to improve and deepen student learning. What’s more, paying particular attention to community building can help make our classes more inclusive and inviting to all members of the W&L community.
