Webinar: Dealing With Difficult Students In Online Classes

Dealing With Difficult Students In Online Classes: How To Address And Diffuse Problems Quickly And Efficiently
March 5th 2014-3:00-4:30 EST

General Information:
Online learning has revolutionized education, allowing students who would otherwise be unable to commit to a classroom schedule to attend college while maintaining work and family responsibilities. Despite its innovative format and flexibility, the online classroom can contribute to some of the same "behavioral" problems found in the face-to-face classroom. The online classroom is rich with opportunities, but it is crucial for instructors to learn how to easily mitigate the factors that can undermine their best efforts.

This program will address how to manage the difficult student in the online classroom. We will identify the most common types of problems unique to this environment. We will also share personal (and often humorous) scenarios, as well as allow participants to share and collaborate on problem solving approaches. Participants will learn practical strategies with great impact that can easily be incorporated into their courses. We will also discuss how student problems can be mediated in such a way that will contribute to student growth.
