Starting to Teach Online

 February 18, 2014

There was an interesting post recently in the Chronicle of Higher Education’s blog ProfHacker. This post, Adventures in Synchronous Online Teaching, details one faculty member’s first foray into developing and teaching an all online seminar, including some of the initial quirks and struggles she faced. You may find this a reassuring read if you are also looking at making the leap to teaching an online or hybrid course and find this a daunting prospect. By the way, if you are looking at a faculty career path and are not reading ProfHacker already, you really should be.

If you happen to be here at Duke and are interested in online teaching, you might find the Bass Online Apprenticeship a great opportunity to get started.
