Don’t let your ‘About Me’ Teacher Intro Block Student Engagement

Purchase for $55.00 (AUD) incl. GST

Process of writing a self-introduction

However, my research has shown that students believe those teacher bio’s are actively blocking engagement. As a result you’re missing a key opportunity to build trust and engagement – two things that are absolutely critical in online education.

Don’t worry – I’ve worked with a communications expert to design and test the perfect formula, and every participant in this webinar will be walked through the process of writing their self-introduction in a way that resonates with students and prompts them to make contact.

A workbook with templates will be emailed out ahead of this session, and includes a link to bonus content about how to take effective notes.

  • The participant notebooks are brilliant
  • Having followed this advice and rewritten my intro, I’m immediately seeing results

Dr Deniese Cox

With a strong background in VET and corporate training, Deniese has been teaching online since 2013 for a variety of organisations in Australia and internationally. Today, through her consulting work at, Deniese helps teams and individuals navigate the shift to online education.

Importantly, the strategies that Deniese shares are practical, proven, and driven by what’s good for online students and teachers, rather than by technology-driven gimmicks or fads. That’s only possible because Deniese is more than an experienced educator, she is also an active online VET researcher. This means that you get access to current best-practice research which Deniese then presents in practical terms. Best of all, Deniese never asserts a one-size-fits-all approach – you’ll walk always from her webinars knowing how to readily apply new ideas to your context and teaching style.

Feel free to see Deniese’s full bio at or visit her testimonials page to see what other participants have said about her engaging workshops. We love the feedback after Deniese’s sessions - everyone is always so positive about her work and energised by her interactive, professional presenting style.
