The first of the seven principles is 'encouraging faculty-student contact.' Chickering and Gamson wrote that, according to decades of educational research, "frequent student-faculty contact in and out of classes is the most important factor in student motivation and involvement. Faculty concern helps students get through rough times and keep on working. Knowing a few faculty members well enhances students' intellectual commitment and encourages them to think about their own values and future plans." In what ways has technology been used in your courses and at your institution that makes such contact between you and your students more productive, satisfying or frequent?
