Building Connections in Virtual Environments

 Application Deadline: November 20, 2020

 The third annual Southwest Florida Symposium on Teaching and Learning is a collaboration between FGCU’s Lucas Center and FSW’s Teaching and Learning Center. This year’s symposium will focus on the myriad ways in which faculty and staff can build connections in virtual environments. Whether connecting with students or colleagues in a synchronous or asynchronous remote setting building good working relationships is integral to teaching, learning, and fostering motivation and morale. Connecting virtually isn’t a new concept but has certainly made its way more profoundly into our daily lives. We welcome proposals from all faculty and staff who have successfully cultivated connections in the virtual environment.  

We encourage applications from all faculty, adjuncts, and staff who are:

  1. integrating strategies that promote connection in virtual meetings, or
  2. interested in leading a roundtable discussion on a topic about building connections.

All sessions will be 50 minutes in length to allow adequate time for demonstrations and discussions.

If you have any questions please contact: FGCU Lucas Center at or FSW TLC at Additional information and keynote speaker will be available soon.
