Teaching Online: A Professional Development Model.
McCallie, Trey; McKinzie, LeAnn
This paper describes the faculty training model utilized in the development and/or conversion of course materials to be delivered on the World Wide Web. A description of the online learning environment (WTOnline) is provided, as well as the process by which faculty members in the West Texas A&M University College of Education interact with that environment during course planning and creation. The importance of a faculty member's early entry into his or her virtual classroom is discussed in terms of the ability to tap into prior teaching experiences and to drive Web course development. The training content is briefly described, including introduction to distance education, orientation to WTOnline, development and communication tools, instructional design issues, promoting online interaction, visual design, analysis of course examples, and sample class layout. A table lists traditional activities and related online activities. (Contains 1 figure, 1 table, and 20 references.) (Author/AEF)
