What Students Can Tell Us About Best Practices of Online Teaching
There is abundant literature on best practices for instruction. But what can our own students tell us about their experience with online instruction and how can those experiences inform our decisions about how we operate as online instructors? Why should we listen to them?
In this session you'll be introduced to a study (albeit informal!) in which the instructor actually ASKED her students for information and as a group, we'll discuss how we can apply what we learn from our students.
Objectives: To discuss ways we can improve our teaching by listening to our students; to view our teaching through our students' eyes
