Presenters: Jennifer McCrickerd
This week join us as Jennifer McCrickerd a philosopher from Drake University reports on her first experience teaching online last summer.
“...what I really wish someone had told me.” - Report of J. McCrickerd's 1st Online Teaching Experience Summer 2012
Jennifer McCrickerd will report on her first-time online teaching experience, the ways in which it did/didn't match her expectations, and offer advice for others who are about to begin their own first-time online teaching experience.
In October, 2011, Jennifer McCrickerd, Associate Professor, Philosophy, Drake University, agreed to teach an online course the following summer. She also offered two FridayLive! online sessions in which she thoughtfully and candidly discussed her expectations, hopes, and fears - and asked participants to suggest how she might prepare more effectively and comfortably.
Many useful suggestions, questions, and online resources were exchanged by voice and within the text chat in the two previous sessions: Individual Members can access the archives for the two previous sessions. (Login will be required.)
