Teacher Passion and Distance Education Theory
Greenberger, Scott W.
Journal of Instructional Research, v1 p34-41 2012
Despite a significant body of research on post-secondary distance education, harmonious passion has not been explored in relation to teacher presence. Teacher presence within a community of inquiry has been identified as an important influence and predictor of student performance. As such, determining the degree of relationship between teacher passion and teacher presence could lead to significant improvement in distance education delivery. If future distance education research confirms a correlation between teacher passion, teacher presence, and aesthetics, online interactions between teachers and learners may need to be re-conceived.
