Teaching Practices

You enjoy the interaction in a regular classroom and are now wondering – How is teaching online different?  You have a notion that things will be different, but are not sure how to take your course that you have developed and actually begin to teach online using it.  We will work on that in this section.

We also differentiate between practices associated with “teaching” and practices associated with “managing" your online class.  We will focus on teaching in this section, and focus on classroom management in Managing Your Online Class

Some key questions in this section:

  • What does the research suggest about how practices should change when teaching online?
  • Why is your presence an important component of an online learning community?
  • Do the time-tested Seven Principles of Good Practice change when teaching online?
