Strategies for Effective On-Line Teaching: Development and Implementation of On-line Curricula
Drawing on my experience of developing undergraduate and graduate English courses for our expanding on-line programs at National University, I will discuss the different strategies that I have successfully applied in the development and execution of these courses.
Keywords: My approach to curricula development and implementation incorporates an interactive approach that acknowledges the unique spatial and temporal nature of on-line education. There is strong evidence to suggest that on-line education can provide a dynamic and learning rich environment for students when we take into account the unique on-line tools that we have at our disposal. By effectively incorporating our on-line resources such as collaborations, discussion boards, and interactive projects in our instruction, we have the capability of creating a dynamic environment that encourages participation and promotes active learning.
