Abstract


A co-teaching online environment has the potential to help more efficiently meet the needs of online learners and provide greater satisfaction for instructors. A well-trained pair of instructors can complement each other, meeting student needs in a timely manner, as well as providing students with the opportunity to view topics from different perspectives, and to gain more in-depth feedback about their work. Specific strategies for a successful online co-teaching experience, including: how to create a successful online learning community; achieve effective course management; provide systematic, in-depth assessment of student learning; and providing timely feedback will be addressed. Methods to improve upon one-another’s teaching strengths will be introduced as well as building community between your peer co-teacher and students.

Keywords : co-teaching, team teaching, online teachin

I've had the chance to team-teach with a number of interns at UW-Stout. I've also worked in other venues as part of a teaching team.  I (almost) always enjoy the experience.  Extra eyes on the class, a variety of perspectives and ideas; it all adds up to a value added learning and teaching experience for all.

InFlow (Information Flow): an integrated model of applied information literacy (nov 13)

SarahMcNicol 

 

InFlow (Information Flow) is a new model of applied information literacy designed to be integrated within the curriculum. It is based on learning activities which have been successfully adopted by teachers throughout Europe during the iTEC project (http://itec.eun.org), and revised and developed further based on feedback from a group of UK librarians.

The Shift of the Role of the Teacher

The Shift of the Role of the Teacher | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

We know today’s students will have to create their jobs, not look for jobs. They will compete with others around the globe. They will have jobs replaced by outsourcing and technology if their skills are easily replicated or duplicated.  To succeed, students will need creativity, communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and entrepreneurship.


They will need to be able to adapt to change, be resilient and able to work effectively in a variety of environments.
