Online Interaction Impacts on Learning: Teaching the Teachers to Teach Online
Wilson, Gail; Stacey, Elizabeth
Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, v20 n1 p33-48 2004
This paper explores the importance of interaction in the online teaching environment and the important role of staff development in developing teacher presence online. Professionally developing staff to use information and communication technologies is viewed from the standpoint of diffusion of innovation, moving from early adopters to mainstream majority, and targeting staff development at this latter group. Approaches to staff development using information and communication technologies are described, and recommendations for staff development for online teaching are made. (Contains 1 table.)
