What is Faculty Engagement?
Faculty engagement in the online and blended learning environments is thought to be the most important predictor of successful student outcomes. Faculty engagement includes how you communicate and interact with your online students. It is the degree to which you, as the leader of the online learning community, build essential relationships with your students. Many studies have implicated interaction as the single-most accurate predictor of online success (Doherty, 2000; Kearsley, 2000; Vrasidas & McIsaac, 1999; Woods, 2002).
