Online education has transformed higher education, but one thing it hasn’t altered is the importance of good teaching. Yet, without the cues of the traditional classroom, such as note taking or head nodding, it’s tough for online instructors to tell if their pedagogical methods are working, and end-of-course evaluations and assessments come too late to make improvements.
It’s also challenging for administrators to make informed decisions about promotion, tenure, and contract renewal for online faculty.
The Online Teaching 4 Pack will show you proven techniques for reviewing the performance and encouraging the development of online faculty. In four 20-minute presentations you’ll learn proven techniques you can implement immediately to help faculty adapt and excel in the online teaching environment.
