Instruction: Best Practices for High-Quality Online Instruction

Name Instruction: Best Practices for High-Quality Online Instruction
Date 1/5/2021
Time 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Many adult education teachers believe that they are "teaching online" just by having students use a website or a commercial software program. Enrollments in these types of distance learning, hybrid, or online classes shows low retention because the instruction is very passive and students are not engaging with either the instructor or classmates.

High-quality online teaching includes active learning, interaction, participation, and collaboration where the teacher provides timely and regular feedback.

This workshop will demonstrate how teachers can use tools within and external to a course management system for instruction, student practice, and assessment that are well-suited to various tasks within the discipline / subject. An opportunity to discuss standards will also be provided. All attendees will be asked to fill out a pre-survey beforehand (provided within registration confirmation.)

An OTAN Certificate of Attendance will be awarded to those that have pre-registered and attend at least 75% of the scheduled time.

OTAN workshops may be requested, customized, and scheduled by qualifying adult education agencies for their staff as targeted professional development.

OTAN workshops may be conducted as a "hands-on”, where participants are asked to provide their own devices, as “presentations” where a product or ideas are introduced, or as a discussion where all are encouraged to participate in a conversation around a specific idea or topic.

The desired outcome of every OTAN workshop is that participants will have a working understanding of the application or topics discussed and modeled.
