How Can I Develop Online Instructor Presence?

Learn step-by-step guidelines for establishing an instructor presence in your online classes. Identify the things you want to share with your class and create a strategy for expressing your persona throughout the semester.

Build a persona to connect with students in the online classroom

Teachers in a traditional classroom can readily build a bond with their students through face-to-face interaction. Online instructors lack this advantage. Because they are typically unseen during their lectures, that crucial connection is much harder to achieve.

A vibrant instructor presence leads to improved student retention in online classes and more authentic teaching. Many online instructors, however, don't know how to create a persona that engages students and is always there for them.

Solving this problem with easy-to-implement ideas is the core message behind How Can I Develop Online Instructor Presence?, a 20-Minute Mentor video now available for purchase from Magna Publications.

Dr. Stephanie Delaney, the dean of extended learning at Seattle Central Community College, gives you step-by-step guidelines for establishing an instructor presence in your online classes. You see how to determine what your teaching persona is. You identify the things you want to share with your class and create a strategy for expressing your persona throughout the semester.

Dr. Delaney reveals how she created her own persona, what she wanted to communicate to her students, and how she reinforced this through policies and activities. You see how the use of simple video and audio tools helps her engage with her students in meaningful ways.

During this presentation, you learn how to choose images and fonts that reflect your persona. You see how something as simple as a syllabus review and the sharing of current news items can also cement the bond with your students.

This program is geared for educators with all levels of awareness. The practical takeaways—delivered in Dr. Delaney's relaxed, informal speaking style—can help you present yourself vividly to your students, increase their retention rate, and pull them together.
