New course to help faculty teach online classes - Shruti Ratnaparkhi, GW Hatchet

Online learning leaders want faculty to get better at teaching online courses. The University Teaching and Learning Center and GW’s in-house online course shop will offer a new online course to faculty next semester to help them learn the best ways to teach classes online. Officials and experts say as more classes are taught remotely, the course should help faculty make the transition to teaching online. Geneva Henry, the dean of libraries and academic innovation, said the course will combine both core teaching methods and the technological elements of course-building to better prepare faculty to become better instructors – online or in-person. “You can teach somebody how to do an online course but it doesn’t necessarily make it a strong pedagogically grounded online course,” Henry said. http://www.gwhatchet.com/2016/10/21/new-course-to-help-faculty-teach-online-courses/
