Investigating Instructor Misbehaviors in the Online Classroom
Vallade, Jessalyn I.; Kaufmann, Renee
Communication Education, v67 n3 p363-381 2018
As online courses continue to gain popularity in higher education, researchers need to examine how instructors' communication and behavior impact student experiences in online settings. More specifically, research that re-examines findings from the traditional, face-to-face classroom within the online class is beneficial not only for building research but also for providing educators with practical online teaching strategies. Thus, the purpose of this study was to replicate previous research examining student perceptions of instructor misbehaviors in the context of the online classroom. Results from this study highlight nine online instructor misbehavior categories, with several specific misbehaviors unique to the online classroom. Based on these categories, implications for instructors teaching online are discussed.
