Title

A Community of Their Own: Developing an Asynchronous Canvas Learning Environment

Abstract

Recently propelled into the new reality of online teaching and learning, writing program directors realized that establishing a sense of community in classes that emphasized peer workshops required a diferent approach for asynchronous students. In response, they provided parallel community-building Learning Management System (LMS) sites that generated student community and alleviated instructor workload. Employing this model of parallel LMS sites for asynchronous students provides them with a community of their own. Although asynchronous students enroll in diferent classes, conference with their own instructors, and receive grades from their instructors, they also fnd community through consistent engagement on a site of their own. In this session, attendees will consider how to use this model to enhance asynchronous students’ sense of community.
