Asynchronous learning, or teaching and learning that occurs when the interaction between the instructor and students is not constrained by time and place, can cause feelings of isolation, resulting in disappointment and low retention rates in online classes. Faculty Focus examines new, proven collaborative learning techniques you can use in the online classroom to promote social interaction and have a positive influence on learning, motivation, and problem-solving.
Welcome to Freshmancomp.com, my teaching and learning website for Glendale Community College. This is my 6th year at GCC, but my 17th in the Maricopa Community College district. I taught 11 years at South Mountain CC previously, and this is my 24th year teaching overall. I blog about teaching with technology in the classroom (face2face, hybrid and online).
