Learning to Teach Online: What Works for Pre-Service Teachers
Duncan, Heather E.; Barnett, John
Journal of Educational Computing Research, v40 n3 p357-376 2009
While opportunities for online learning are increasing in K-12 education, few teacher education programs include courses on online teaching and learning. Using Garrison and Anderson's (2003) "Community of Inquiry" framework, this qualitative study explored the educational experiences of pre-service teachers in an experiential online course designed to teach about online teaching. Students explored aspects of online education and created a multi-media teaching module. The study highlighted the need for pre-service teacher education programs to design learning experiences that equip the next generation of teachers with the skills required to teach 21st century students in a variety of media that accommodate a diversity of learning styles.
