OTAN Tech Talk - Best Practices for High-Quality Online Instruction
Teaching And Working Online
Many adult education teachers believe that they are "teaching online" by having students use a website or a commercial software program. Enrollments in these types of distance learning, hybrid, or online classes shows low retention, because the instruction is very passive and students are not engaging with either the instructor or classmates. High-quality online teaching includes active learning, interaction, participation, and collaboration. The teacher provides timely and regular feedback. Teachers use tools within and external to a course management system for instruction, student practice, and assessment that are well-suited to various tasks within the discipline/subject. This Tech Talk will provide an opportunity to discuss standards.
