Virtual Office Hours increases student engagement with ‘hybrid’ approach

When the pandemic forced Betsy Stovall to move her large calculus class online last spring, she wondered how it would affect her office hours, which also became entirely virtual. The answer came soon enough. “I sat there alone staring at the walls,” says Stovall, an associate professor of mathematics. “Even with in-person office hours, students often feel they need a good reason to come in or it’s awkward. I think that was especially true online.”
