This is my comment to Brandon’s post : A First Teaching Experience
It was the worst teaching experience of my (admittedly short) teaching career. Everything that could go wrong technologically did
Do we use KISS when we help teachers select an appropriate technology?
Many instructors teaching online today are not “Web heads”. …..They do not possess the “information literacy” skills now required of many undergraduates , despite an assumption that professors are all computer–savvy
If we went all the way back, we could teach faculty much of what we were taught back in 1998. Somewhere between then and now we stopped creating things and began plugging “content” into other people’s systems. Building our own spaces might have made us more creative.
3- if you are teaching online you must always have a backup and a plan B!!!!!!
