Virginia To Considers New Requirements For Online Education - WAMU

Virginia To Considers New Requirements For Online Education - WAMU | e-l(earning) | Scoop.it
Virginia To Considers New Requirements For Online Education
WAMU
When the Virginia State Board of Education meets next month, members will discuss establishing new licensing requirements for educators who teach only online courses.
Sky V. King's insight:

Excellent questions- how do we prepare students to be successful online learners?  do teachers need seperate requirements if they are teaching online?

 

Why not teach and expect all teachers to know similar skills- especially if we want to nurture students to be successful as online learners.  Sooner or later, students needs to be versed in skills to be successful online.  Chicken or the egg?

Sky V. King's insight:

The courses that most universities provide in MOOC format are light versions of credit courses.  Don't universities have a role in providing education to the community beyond pay for credit?  I think this is a taste test of a topic, teacher and university.  Doesn't this opportunity have the potential to make USA more competative globally?
