Teaching Presence in Online Courses: Practical Applications, Co-Facilitation, and Technology Integration
Budhai, Stephanie Smith; Williams, Maureen
Journal of Effective Teaching, v16 n3 p76-84 2016
The number of online courses being offered at the postsecondary level has constantly increased. However, online instructors are still investigating ways to translate their pedagogical instruction into the online forum, while maintaining a strong presence instructionally. This paper aims to address how to build teaching presence in online courses. An example of how teaching presence was increased in an online graduate research methods course is shared focusing on the constructs of designing organization, facilitating dis-course, and direct instruction. This paper concludes with implications and best practices for applying a similar model to build teaching presence in other online courses.
