Faculty members who have taught face-to-face courses are sometimes skeptical about online teaching and learning—not because the technology is a challenge, but because online students seem to be very different from the students whom they’ve taught in person, in their classrooms.
This webinar will debunk five commonly held myths about online learners, and offer five specific changes that faculty can implement, even in the middle of an online course, in order to improve communication, build trust, and re-focus students on learning objectives. Webinar participants will also see examples of best practices, work through a “myth-busting” exercise, and learn how best to prepare to interact successfully with online students.
