Assessing the Impact of Librarian Presence in an Online Course -or- High touch = High impact?16th Annual Information Literacy Summit (2017)
Working with an online undergraduate course for adult students, DePaul librarians revised our model for embedded practice, focusing on high touch and quality contact with the students, practices understood as establishing ‘teaching presence’. Using a citation analysis of final papers, we found that our added attention to this cohort resulted in significant improvements to the student bibliographies. This session will address the importance of instructor “presence” in the online environment as a predictor of student success, and will present practical ways to establish that “presence” for your own online teaching.
