Online and hybrid courses are becoming increasingly popular across the world. Benefits of these courses include geographic and schedule flexibility, adaptability to meet learners' needs, and sometimes even "on-demand" lectures. However, there are drawbacks as well: assessing student understanding, communicating to the class, and developing meaningful relationships with students all are harder and require ingenuity. Panelists, teaching in a variety of online and hybrid statistics and data-related courses, will provide new ideas, resources, and strategies to encourage better student-student and student-faculty interaction in online courses. Panelists will illustrate how online learning can extend and expand what is possible in teaching statistics. Their expertise includes student engagement with videos, enacting pedagogy online, Creating interactive environments, communicating effectively with students through different modalities, evaluating students' understanding and engagement, and establishing instructor presence. Panelists will share their innovative strategies, offer practical advice, and field audience questions.
