Guide To Teaching and Learning


Teaching an Online Class: what needs to change? The word teaching.

Rather than focus on “teaching,” online instructors must design opportunities for students to learn. Content selection; transparent structure, organization and course facilitation; and scaffolded exercise/assignment development are far more important in an online environment than in face-to-face courses. 

This guide contains information and resources to help you develop research based, pedagogically sound approaches for crafting engaging and effective learning experiences for the students in your courses, aka: a really good online class.
