Sept 16 - Teaching Online Webinar & Discussion

Teaching Online vs. F2F: 15 Differences That Affect Learning
September 16, 2010
12:30 pm to 2:00 pm
Busch Student Center, Room 174

The Center for Teaching Advancement and Assessment Research, together with the TA Project, the Office of Information Technology, the Office of Instructional and Research Technology, and the Division of Continuing Education and Outreach are partnering to provide faculty with a series of presentations, webinars, panels and discussions on the issues of teaching in an online environment. Teaching online can be either in a "hybrid course" where some face-to-face classes are held or a "fully online course." 

The University Senate passed a resolution last year, concluding that, "The hybrid format is a pedagogically valid mode of instruction that may appeal to many students. While its usage at Rutgers is likely to expand, the hybrid model should not be seen as something destined to replace all traditional face-to-face instruction."

In his response to the University Senate's recommendations, President McCormick urged "that units conduct careful evaluations of the effectiveness of hybrid courses in comparison to more traditional ones, and to examine in particular their use by students with different levels of preparation and academic qualifications. It may very well be that hybrid courses are more effective when taken by some students than by others or when used to deliver certain kinds or levels of course material." 

 Questions to be addressed during the Sept 16 webminar include: 
  • What are the main pedagogical challenges of teaching online? 
  • Which differences are most significant in making the transition from face-to-face to online instruction? 
  • How can teaching online enhance face-to-face instruction and vice versa? 
  • How might this online seminar affect the way instructors view online teaching?
