Making a Transition: The Development of Academics' Role and Identity in Online Teaching
Thanaraj, Ann
Practitioner Research in Higher Education, v10 n2 p40-53 2016
This paper explored the journey of three academics as they moved from face-to-face teaching to online teaching over a period of twenty months. From the findings of this study, it is recommended that for an academic to make an effective transition they need to be supported effectively to embrace the changes to their role and to their practice and consequently to their identity. It is hoped that this study may assist in discussions around staff development training and in supporting academics on the transition.
