Moving from the classroom to online teaching: a study of change in faculty attitudes
MetadataShow full item record
Much research exists on both the administrative and student issues of distance education. But there is little research on the perceptions and experiences of faculty who teach in online environments. This study focuses on what faculty experienced as they began to use the Internet as a medium for teaching and learning. In particular, this study explored faculty perceptions of changes in their teaching practices as a result of teaching online in five different graduate programs. This information may help other educators to understand the critical factors in the design of both effective training and support of faculty who teach online courses. This study also provides practical guidelines to help those who train faculty in online pedagogy and instructional designers.
