Education Support for Faculty and Staff
Teaching distance education courses offer students flexible ways of receiving learning content. Teaching online requires a certain amount of technical knowledge, but it also requires knowledge of pedagogical principles specific to online teaching. This presents instructors with new challenges and opportunities in teaching because more often than not, instructors need to evaluate many aspects of their instruction, including course design - how they deliver lessons, course materials, communicate, and interact with students, and how they will assess content in the online environment.
If you are considering teaching online, or would like help with your online content, please contact the Instructional Technologist/Designer at Oxnard College.
