Introduction to Teaching Online - online short courseMini Course
ITO is delivered entirely online over a five week period. Participants complete assigned readings, watch short video interviews with instructors who are experienced in teaching online, and actively engage with each other through discussion forums and "live" video/audio/text communication.
ITO is designed to provide participants with a foundation from which to develop as effective facilitators of online courses. It also gives participants an idea of what learning online is like from the perspective of a learner, which is valuable when it comes time to design an online experience for your students.
Past participants have come from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds and have had a range of comfort levels with dealing with technology. Some have experience teaching online, and others are just trying to get an idea of what teaching online would be like. Some are very comfortable online, and others are new to this environment. Whether you have a lot of experience, or none at all, and whether you are tech savvy or just learning, you'll fit right in.
We will be using an open text book for this class, which you may view free of charge by following this link: bit.ly/ITOtext.
Location: Online - no face-to-face meetings
