Exploring Quality Teaching in the Online Environment Using an Evidence-Based Approach
Prieto-Rodriguez, Elena; Gore, Jennifer; Holmes, Kathryn
Australian Journal of Teacher Education, v41 n8 Article 2 p22-39 Aug 2016
Online learning is increasingly ubiquitous in higher education. However, research regarding online teaching often focuses on the affordances of the online environment rather than on the quality of pedagogy. In this paper we consider how online learning could be enhanced using rich pedagogical models that are consistent with a wealth of existing knowledge on pedagogy for face-to-face settings. To do so, we apply an established framework, the Quality Teaching model, to explore pedagogy in the online environment and illustrate its potential benefits using a case study of 60 students in a tertiary mathematics teacher education program. We conclude that the use of an evidence-based pedagogical model can help guide online instructors in the development of high quality online courses.
