Best Practices for High-Quality Online Instruction

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 where the teacher provides timely and regular feedback.

This workshop will demonstrate how teachers can 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. An opportunity to discuss standards will also be provided. All attendees will be asked to fill out a pre-survey beforehand (provided within registration confirmation.)
