Ten Takeaway Tips for Online Learning | C21 learning: ideas and tools for teachers | Scoop.it
Good teaching is good teaching whether it happens in a classroom or on a computer screen (or in a house, or with a mouse, or in a box, or with a fox, for that matter).

 

The following tips are compiled from interviews with online principals and teachers in Idaho, including Mortimer; Jeff Farden, an online principal with the Idaho Digital Learning Academy (IDLA); Mike Caldwell, director of supervision and development with IDLA; and social studies specialist Jeff Simmons, also of IDLA. Kerry Rice, assistant professor and associate chair of the Department of Educational Technology at Boise State University (BSU), contributed as well.

JOLT - Journal of Online Learning and Teaching: What the Best Online Teachers Should Do

JOLT - Journal of Online Learning and Teaching: What the Best Online Teachers Should Do | C21 learning: ideas and tools for teachers | Scoop.it
Abstract


As a core project, a university eLearning Pedagogy Faculty Learning Community (FLC) chose to apply recommendations for the “art” of good teaching to the online realm. There is relatively little discussion of this issue in the literature. In this paper, we use Bain’s (2004) book What the Best College Teachers Do to discuss some of the major ways that the practices of effective teaching in general can be applied to online teaching in particular. Specifically, we explore methods of fostering student engagement, stimulating intellectual development, and building rapport with students when teaching online. This analysis provides a much-needed “art of teaching” set of recommendations that complements the “science of teaching” best practices approach to online pedagogy.
