developing thinking

May 7, 2008

Thinking about faculty needs. Online teaching can be challenging as you navigate the similarities and differences of teaching on ground and online. As faculty we need collaboration, communication and connection about e-learning best practices and new tools. As the landscape of online learning expands exponentially with daily additions of user-generated content, it is increasingly difficult for faculty to remain current in the advancements in their field of specialty, in addition to online tools that support instructional best practices. And learning is social. We need regular opportunities to come together to share information and resources as we all navigate teaching online. I seek interaction within a community of faculty, in a  format that will allow lurking, learning and participation in ways and at times that fit for our individual professional and personal schedules and goals.  This support will allow me to develop my own thinking about teaching and learning online.
