Thrive Online Book Club

Fall 2024 Semester

During the fall semester, we will be discussing, "Learning Online: The Student Experience" by George Veletsianos. This book hopes to empower faculty to improve online learning by examining it through the lens of the student experience.

"Learning Online: The Student Experience" is available as a free e-book through the Library system. Please note that reading the book for this offering is optional. Your participation in discussion and camaraderie are important to us. You are welcome to attend these sessions if you prefer not to read the book. We'll begin each meeting with a very brief summary of the reading and then quickly move into conversation.

Meeting Dates

Participants will meet through Microsoft Teams three times over the semester. There is no requirement to attend each session. There’s always room for new voices in our group. Participants are encouraged to invite a friend to join a session, even if they haven’t had the opportunity to read the book.

  • Thursday, September 12, from 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.
  • Thursday, October 10, from 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.
  • Thursday, November 14, from 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.


These sessions will be led by:

  • Kelvin Thompson, Vice Provost for Online Strategy and Teaching Innovation
  • Deb Hatfield, Senior Instructional Designer, Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning
