10 Things Teaching Online Has Taught Me

distance-learning

Michelle Everson I celebrated an anniversary recently. It’s been five years since I taught my first online course. When I first started to think about teaching online, I realized I had a lot to learn. I had never been an online student, nor did I know much about distance education. I just knew I wanted […]

MOOCs Will Probably Turn Out To Be Little More Than An Edu-tainment “Bubble”

rise_of_the_MOOCs

by Peter Scott I have tried, really hard, not to write about MOOCs. But I can’t keep it up forever, and what better time than the silly season to write about this phenomenon, which may transform higher education, or just turn out to be another damp squib. MOOCs, for anyone who has switched off from the chattering […]

Kindles, Nooks, And Why I Still Don’t Have An e-Reader (At Least Not Yet)

Kindle

By Rich Russell The season for reading is here, friends! I feel guilty about how little progress I’ve made on the stack of books nesting on my bedside table: a veritable, vertical library that teeters like some structurally unsound tower threatening to collapse and smother me in my sleep (a poetic end to be sure). […]

“Critical Thinking” – The Online Education Buzz-Phrase

thinking

by Robert Borger It seems to me that the new buzzword in online education is “Critical Thinking.”  I just completed a Webinar about the topic last month, have plenty of messages about how to increase critical thinking with my students, and see it come up in grading templates and rubrics continually.  This is something that […]

More Classes More Money! When is Enough….Enough?

overwhelmed

by Robert Borger I have always had more than one job, ever since I started working.  This all started before high school, when I started the typical lawn mowing service for friends and neighbors for fun money.  I actually remember the article I read as a kid about letting people know about your willingness to […]

“No, This Class Doesn’t Have A Textbook”

Russell

By Rich Russell As an adjunct professor, I don’t always have the “privilege” of being able to choose my own textbook. If one is assigned for a course — whether that’s by me or by the college — I feel obligated to use it as much as possible. I don’t care for professors who list […]

  • Active Learning vs. Lecturing in the College Classroom

    by Paul T. Corrigan One often hears of active learning as a new approach. In contrast, lecturing is the traditional method. Those who support active learning consider it an innovation.

  • Great Apps to Create Meaningful Connections Inside (and Outside) the Classroom

    by Shawn Orr I love technology! I guess if I’m being completely honest, what I really love is the engagement, excitement, and interactivity that technology brings to my college classroom. I’m not talking about the bells and whistles (although that’s fun, too), but the true engagement that happens when I use technology that really resonates […]
