Rather than putting the focus on technologies and offering perspective advice based on anecdotal experiences and common sense, Online Teaching at its Best highlights the proven online teaching practices that are anchored in solid research. Written for faculty, instructional designers, and administrators, this vital resource outlines the best practices in teaching and learning and the principles from cognitive science. The text's practices and principles are presented in such a way as to aid all students in their effort to keep the pace, understand the material, and fulfill their true potential as learners. This book fills a gap in the literature by providing evidence-based practices for online teaching, online course design, and online student motivation, integrated with pedagogical and cognitive science to help build the distance learning courses and programs that all students deserve. Designed to be a practical resource, the text shows how to adopt new pedagogical techniques that are targeted specifically for online learning environments. The approaches outlined ensure strong course alignment and effective student learning for online classes and can help to increase student retention, build necessary support structures, and train faculty more effectively. The authors - noted experts in the field - provide an essential guide to developing online classes that measure up to the rigor and quality of excellence in teaching and assessment, build in the personal touch for developing a learning community, and equip all students to succeed in the next challenge. -- from back cover.
