Are We Doing Enough to Help Faculty Teach Online?
Thursday, January 16, 2020 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. CST
Presented by: Elizabeth Harsma, Minnesota State University, Mankato
A recent survey of public colleges and university provosts on online education reported that even as institutions’ expectations for online learning capacity and quality grow, training, and support for those who teach online is lacking. Based on the findings, four recommendations were offered:
- mandatory or incentivized training
- ongoing professional development
- feedback cycle for instructor evaluation, including peer feedback
- uniform standard components of an online course.
This facilitated group discussion will evaluate, assess, and seek ways to apply these four recommendations for addressing this preparation gap.
All Minnesota State employees are welcome to attend at no charge, free monthly webinars on topics related to teaching and learning with technology. These are offered through the Minnesota Learning Commons which sponsors the Minnesota Summit on Learning and Technology conference. The webinars include the most highly rated presentations from the past year’s Summit (2019), as well as presentations on special projects by educators from around the state.
