There are many resources available to students and instructors of distance learning courses through the University of Arkansas Libraries.
The University of Arkansas has adopted the Quality Matters rubric as a resource to help our online courses meet national standards and best practices. The rubric focuses on the form and function of the course while allowing a lot of flexibility and leaves the content up to the instructor.
Chris Shields, faculty member of the Sociology and Criminology Department in the Fulbright College spoke with faculty about engaging students in the classroom and online.
Shields started the discussion with the reminder that we are here teaching because we love engaging with our students.
