The Skeptical Educator's Guide to Teaching Online, by Amanda Dills
For teachers diving headfirst into the waters online teaching for the first time, the idea of switching from a face-to-face or blended course format to an online one can be very daunting.
This guide book breaks the concept of “online teaching” down into its core elements so that educators in all disciplines can get a big-picture understanding of online learning. It explores the criteria for what makes an online course, possible priorities one would have while creating an online course, the roles involved in online course creation, and the different logistical variables involved in online education. Finally, the book puts these elements together with a few outside-the-box online course case studies.
For everyone from administrators trying to support newly-crowned online faculty to educators trying to keep their head above water in challenging times, this short guidebook will empower educators to ask questions and secure the resources they need to successfully teach online.
