Peer mentoring models for online faculty success

For many faculty, the prospect of teaching an online course can be bewildering. With only traditional classroom experience to draw upon, they may be confused about how to engage students who live behind a screen and a password.

Often it is not just the students who are remote. These courses can be taught by adjunct faculty or faculty working from remote locations. As such, instructors can find themselves isolated or working alone. Colleges and universities may also lack qualified online teachers who can guide unseasoned colleagues.
