Transforming Online Teaching in Higher Education: Essential Practices for Engagement, Equity, and Inquiry (Paperback)
Drawing on their years of experience leading transformative online classrooms in higher education, the authors present an approach for teaching online that is both engaging and effective. This practical book provides an overview of essential approaches, bolstered by examples from various instructors who are teaching online courses. The authors examine how progressive practices are useful for instructors new to the online classroom as well as for experienced online educators seeking to enhance their existing practices. The topics discussed include engagement, equity, presence, and community--all relevant areas for today's college and university classrooms. Each chapter introduces and defines a specific topic and then provides stories based on interviews with members of the authors' online teaching network. The end result is a narrative guide that will help faculty strengthen their students' online experience by creating an atmosphere that is connected and robust.
