Regular and Substantive Interaction Learner Statement

The learner and the instructor play a crucial role in the outcome of the online and blended learning experience and engage in regular and substantive interactions to advance student learning and to foster persistence and completion of courses and programs. Students are expected to participate synchronously or asynchronously in regular and substantive interactions with faculty and others as required by the course syllabus. 

Online and blended learning environments integrate learner autonomy and interactive opportunities to enrich the learning experience in a caring and supportive manner. Course design and delivery promote a sense of community, contribute to students’ learning and professional interests, and provide for effective assessment and documentation of student learning, persistence, and completion.
