Overcoming Imposter Syndrome as an Online Technical Instructor

Despite their skills and credentials, many instructors can feel a sense of inadequacy throughout their careers. Here are 3 ways to appear more confident than you actually feel — and help students learn at the same time. 
EDTECH@UTRGV's insight:

While we sometimes incorrectly assume that today’s students, as digital natives, already know what they need to know in order to be good digital citizens, recent research suggests that this is not the case. To fill this gap, students need to be taught about digital citizenship in a thorough and engaging manner. So what’s missing in your digital citizenship curriculum?"

3 Ways Tech Integration Can Be Detrimental

3 Ways Tech Integration Can Be Detrimental | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"As an instructional technologist, I am always looking for tools to aid in the learning process. I believe wholeheartedly that when integrated well technology adds engagement, opportunities for advanced/deeper learning, and possibilities for teachers to be more relational. That being said, I also believe that technology can become a babysitter and the idea of putting access to the world in the hands of students as a babysitter is a little unnerving to me."

Survey: Most Students Say Online Learning Is as Good or Better Than Face-to-Face

In a survey of 1,500 online students, most considered the value of their degree equal to or greater than the cost they paid to take it. Among those who have attended face-to-face and online courses, the majority said that online learning is as good as or better than attending courses on campus. The survey was conducted by Learning House and Aslanian Market Research.
EDTECH@UTRGV's insight:

If facilitated correctly, online learning can be as good as, and in some cases, better than face-to-face learning.
