Pazurek presents at AAACE

LT’s Angel Pazurek presented “Fostering Student Engagement in Online Learning Environments by Designing Experiences” at the American Association for Adult and Continuing Education last week in Indianapolis, Indiana.Her presentation was part of the AHEA (Adult Higher Education Alliance) strand of AAACE which is focused on higher education within the realm of adult education.

In her presentation, Pazurek argued, “As online facilitators and instructional designers, we are prompted to consider what conditions affect student engagement online and how our efforts might encourage and foster such engagement within virtual spaces. I argue that we must place more emphasis on designing for the learner experience and less on delivering content in order to engage the learner in authentic, meaningful ways.”
