How Can I Build Community with My Online Faculty?
In online education, faculty performance management is critical to ensuring quality teaching and learning, as well as student retention. Due to its solitary and asynchronous nature, faculty who teach online often feel disconnected from the institutions for which they work, and they may be physically distant from the home office or campus as well. As a result, both full-time and part-time online faculty may have inconsistent teaching performance, absences that exceed best practices or university standards, and poor communication with students, managers, and colleagues. Building community with your online faculty members can help you prevent many common teaching concerns, allow faculty to feel invested and like part of the team, and become a significant factor in student success.
