I've found that library media specialists have an edge when it come to learning how to teach online. Librarians are masters of information. Understanding how to fully utilize online resources is one of foundation competencies for teaching online. ~ Dennis

E-Learning Graduate Certificate Program: The Essential Role of Information Fluency in E-Learning and Online Teaching

E-Learning Graduate Certificate Program: The Essential Role of Information Fluency in E-Learning and Online Teaching | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

I include information fluency training in all of my online classes. I introduce power searching and website investigation to the graduate students studying in the E-Learning and Online Teaching Certificate Program at UW-Stout ( http://www.uwstout.edu/soe/profdev/elearningcertificate.html ) because I believe that Information Fluency is a foundation skill for all online teachers and learners.

 

What continually surprises me is that most educators (including those with advanced degrees) lack formal training in this field. Unless I'm working with a Library Media Specialist, most have little experience in searching, evaluating, and ethical use of digital materials.

-

Curiously, most educators think they are competent searchers and evaluators, when they are really just beginners. Their disposition is to ask for help rather than search for answers. With simple instruction many radically improve their ability to search, and evaluate. This is empowering and greatly increases learner satisfaction. Instruction in copyright and fair use is also part of the program.

"This is a 'MUST HAVE' course for any trainer that is interested in learning how to teach online.


As a seasoned online learner, this is by far the best online course I have taken. Dennis has a strong virtual presence and has made the course very interactive and relevant to my personal learning, as well as providing high quality, research based content and facilitating thought provoking discussions among the participants. I was always 'in the know' of how I was doing throughout the course due his timely and supportive feedback. For me, this course has set a new standard in online learning!"

E-Learning Graduate Certificate Program: Where to Find Online Teaching Jobs

E-Learning Graduate Certificate Program: Where to Find Online Teaching Jobs | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Teaching is the best job in the world. You help people. You spend your work life energy participating in an endlessly fascinating process. You also get paid to learn.


Online teaching adds geographical independence and a big dose of entrepreneurship to the life of a teacher. I've found that to be a very good thing.

As the program advisor and instructor for the University of Wisconsin-Stout's Online Teaching Graduate Certificate Program, I teach online classes every semester.


Another very important part of my job is helping people find work.


I try to keep our students informed of new jobs as I find them. However, when I search I find thousands of online teaching jobs. I can't republish them all on my E-Learning and Online Teaching Jobs Blog. Instead, I want to show you where you can find those job leads for yourself.


I'm convinced, that at this very moment, the perfect online teaching job is waiting for any talented teacher with the right combination of subject matter skills, e-learning training and professional networking.

E-Learning Graduate Certificate Program: Time Management Strategies for Online Instructors | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

You know the old joke: Those that really need time management help are too busy to find it! It's sad but true. Teaching online is a lot like juggling. You have to keep so many technologies, ideas, students, and deadlines in the air at once that sometimes just a momentary lapse of concentration can knock you flat.
