Chickering and Gamson introduced seven principles for engaging undergraduate students into the literature in 1987. The principles provided faculty with the foundational best practices they could incorporate into their own courses. Using Chickering and Gamson's best practices, the authors of this chapter conducted a literature review on how these best practices could be used for engaging learners through the support of technology. Institutions of higher education are incorporating online degree programs in their strategies and should understand how to prepare faculty, especially new faculty, for facilitating online courses for nontraditional students using the learning management system (LMS), technology, pedagogical approaches, and best practices.
