This presentation addresses the commonsense notion that using technology in some courses is "risky" and "might work well for some students, but not for mine." Following Banks (2006) who argues that technology is both a site of struggle and possible liberation, the presenters demonstrate how their own informed risk taking in high stakes developmental courses results in students' increased willingness to become successful risk-takers themselves in an academic setting. Drawing on Garrison and Vaughan's (2008) observations around creating communities of inquiry and Lehman's (2011) work on social presence, this session is about forwarding student engagement and self-authorship (Baxter-Magolda) using technology.
