Crafting an Approach to Online Teaching
Meyer, Paul
Journal of Instructional Research, v2 p43-47 2013
Online teaching is in its adolescence and needs to mature in order to overcome some of its growing pains to reach its potential in the field of education. Reflecting upon the author's first three years teaching online, he notes practices and commitments that could help instructors better participate in and facilitate lifelong learning for students. To overcome challenges of online education, such as physical isolation and a sense of disconnectedness, instructors must develop creative and personalized strategies to meet students' needs. The author offers personalized reflections to guide online pedagogy/andragogy, foster dialogue and encourage enhanced student learning in the online classroom. Essentially, teaching in the online classroom involves establishing and developing principles of support and communication that could result in the understanding and application of information.
