Dr. Jalin Johnson of the School of Business and Professional Studies and Dr. Sheila Steinbert of the School of Arts and Sciences led a roundtable session on “Effective and Efficient Engagement Best Practices for Online Teaching and Learning” at the Lily Conference in Newport Beach.

They also presented information in a poster session “Effective Online Community/Cultures Model: Building for Action.” Dr. Brandi Mills contributed to the research for both presentations but was unable to attend the conference.

The roundtable discussion explored how to develop a supportive online class community using synchronous and asynchronous activities and virtual group work. The presentation, which drew a large and enthusiastic following, also touched on best practices of engaged online instructors and strategies for creating participation in class discussions and obtaining feedback.

The poster session focused on how to meet the specific challenges of creating community in the online environment that will generate a community of action.

The Lily Conference series participants come from across the United States and represent faculty and administrators at various stages in their academic careers, ranging from post-doctoral positions, adjunct faculty, new faculty, mid-career faculty, seasoned faculty, and even emeritus faculty. The overarching conference theme was “Evidence-Based Teaching and Learning,”
