SET Spring 2021 - Helping Online Students Feel Like They Belong
From Craig Clarkson
In fall 2020, about 10% of Baylor undergraduates were taking all their courses online. These students report lack of a sense of community and belonging–leading to lower retention and added learning challenges. These concerns are exacerbated by the fact that minority students are over-represented in the online-only group. Many Baylor faculty, however, thoughtfully and intentionally help foster connections for online students. This SET is devoted to learning from those instructors whom Baylor’s online-only students consistently identified as helping them succeed and feel like they belong.
