Presenter for the Following Session
- Creating Personalization and Belonging in the online classroom
Abraham Maslow proposed his hierarchy of needs in 1943 to explain human motivation. A corresponding hierarchy of needs could be applied to teaching, especially online and blended instruction. Most instructors design their courses based on the lower level basic needs of a class. Instructors will spend a great deal of time and energy selecting the textbook and carefully focusing on the content. Content for most instructors is equal to food and water in the physiological need category. The next thing most instructors focus on is the design of the course with careful consideration for the buttons, detailed course assignments, and the gradebook.
