As colleges rapidly deployed online instruction in the wake of the pandemic, instructors struggled to connect meaningfully with students.

Immediacy is about shortening the distance between teacher and student through clear communication, approachability, and a sense of community. Participants learn how to build authenticity in the digital classroom with instructional immediacy.
