One way to keep remote students engaged and build a sense of community is to assign students to groups of 8 or 10 for the entire quarter. Whether it’s responses to “lecture” material or reading, low-stakes homework together, or a full-blown group project, building in a sustained community will help keep remote students supported and engaged.
