Teaching Online With Errol: Be Proud You Teach Online!
Nearly all of us who teach online are proud of it and truly enjoy it. But there are two nagging problems besetting us. First, some feel apologetic for teaching online—“I’m teaching online, but only … ” (you fill in the excuse), or “I’m teaching online, but my full-time job is … ” (take your pick)—and second, many in our society still diss the value of online education. Their number is shrinking, thank goodness, but they remain a force. I’m tired of this. I’m tired of running into apologetic online instructors and hearing from folks in the business sector who don’t see the value of online learning.
