Teaching Online: First-Hand Experience and Best Practices — Webinar Re-Cap
Many classroom teachers have begun to migrate toward online education as a place to broaden their teaching experience and deepen their impact with students. Andrew Vanden Heuvel led a webinar about what it’s like to teach in an online environment, utilizing the interface to enhance both traditional classroom experiences and fully virtual programs. He discussed helpful skills needed to be a successful teacher in the online format as well as suggested resources and best practices that are key to online teaching success. This webinar recording is a great opportunity to glean advice from an online teaching veteran who understands the pros and cons of pursuing online teaching career opportunities. Administrators are encouraged to invite teachers and faculty to explore these opportunities to enhance classroom effectiveness and as a means of earning additional income.
Presenter Andrew Vanden Heuvel, a Calvin College and University of Florida alum, has extensive experience in areas related to science, technology, online learning, and other innovative approaches to education. He was named the Michigan Virtual Teacher of the Year in 2010 and was nominated for Online Teacher of the Year in 2011. He is the founder of AGL Initiatives, has worked with Google Glass for education, and created STEMbite.com (a website of innovative science-based teaching videos). Follow Andrew on Twitter @avheuv.
Guest panelist, Kristin Bird from Sevenstar, was available on the webinar to give her thoughts about the teachers she hires into their online course program and the responsibilities they have as online teachers.
