Appreciative Andragogy is an instructional strategy that combines the study of distance learning and the application of Appreciative Inquiry, a strength-based organizational development tool. This 12-week online course presents an online teaching method that any instructor can implement in any online class to: increase their instructional effectiveness, build working relationships with students, increase the student retention rate, and improve student performance, motivation, and engagement in the class. One of the important aspects of this course is the application of the topics to practical classroom facilitation. This is a university quality course that has been designed in the same manner as courses taken with online schools.
