Creating Instructor Presence

A well-designed course complemented by an active instructor presence makes for an effective student learning experience. Presence is a significant indicator of students’ sense of belonging to the “community,” their engagement with course materials, and their satisfaction with the learning experience. Instructors who guide students actively through course materials and foster student engagement demonstrate a strong instructor presence in their courses.
