Abstract

As part of a senior capstone course, one of the graduating students developed a tutorial to enhance online learning. After surveying current students and collaboration with the health sciences librarian and faculty, two priorities for improvement emerged. These were identified as ways to help students work in groups and use discussion forums more effectively. This presentation will include sharing what was learned through the literature, a tutorial that was developed for students and how the effectiveness of the teaching strategy is being evaluated. Come learn about how to enhance your own online instruction.
