How Can Preparing to Teach Online Improve My Face-to-face Teaching?

How Can Preparing to Teach Online Improve My Face-to-face Teaching?

Teachers often assume their face-to-face pedagogies are, by default, better than online. When teachers are tasked with developing an online course, their thinking often follows along these lines: This is what I do in class. How can that be translated online? Online course preparation leads to more effective face-to-face teaching. The process of developing an online course requires an examination of classroom-based course design, exploration of assumptions about learning, and ultimately improves instructional practice in both settings. This mentor explores these issues along five dimensions: teaching persona, power distance, instructional clarity, student interaction, and learning assessment.
