Share Your Success with the World!

The ‘Learning to Teach Online’ project (LTTO) is based around sharing best practice in online pedagogy development, teaching and evaluation between practitioners. We want to encourage a dialogue between teachers from all disciplines, to help everyone out there who wants to start teaching online get the best advice from those who have done it all before.


The Situation

No matter how many books or research papers you read about teaching online, the hardest thing to get your mind around as a teacher are the practical aspects of running a class in an online or blended environment. COFA Online’s LTTO project will explore the real pragmatics of teaching online, and help give educators the head start they need to avoid the frustrations that usually emerge in the practical details.

To this end, the project will feature case studies of successful online teaching strategies from tertiary teachers from many different disciplines. These case studies will examine the context, planning, teaching, evaluation and technical set up processes used by different teachers, and enable users of this resource to see theory and strategy in action.

How You Can Help Your Colleagues

If you have taught in a fully online, blended or mobile context at University level, and have had positive results both from a student and teaching perspective, then let us know about your project.

We can discuss how your own project may be relevant to LTTO and other teachers, and if its a leading example of online teaching excellence, we can showcase your good work to the rest of the world. Your innovation can help encourage others to start teaching online, or help improve existing online teaching practice. So get in touch and discuss your project today!

    Hi Simon,

    I teach an outreach class of Middle Years students. One of the alternative options for programming will be online learning. At this point, we are in the development stages of that, and I will be following your blog closely as the conversation continues.

    I am excited to read the stories and ideas of online learning teachers.

    Thanks guys. I SHOULD have clarified that we need case studies from higher education (as the funding body of the project has placed an edict that all examples come from this sector). However when the funding runs out in a year we can expand the case studies to secondary education and industry.

    HOWEVER the content and ideas we’ll be covering will certainly be applicable to all areas and all teachers.

    Pass the word around if you could! Thanks.

    Well first and foremost,

    Congrats on the initiative to do up this blog. I don’t consider myself a full-fledged online educator but I have been working virtually with students and teachers either in a totally virtual environment or a blend of F2F and online activity. I would be glad to share my experiences here; just let me know how and when.

    Cheers

    Thanks for your comments Stephan!

    I tell you what. We are trying to get an online community of educators started as part of the Learning to Teach Online project. We haven’t put a maximum effort into getting it going yet, but if you’d like to share your online teaching experiences there you certainly be most welcome!

    Here’s the link:

    The forum is VERY much in its infancy, and will have a makeover and a proper launch a bit later when we release our first LTTO resources. But in the meantime we are looking for a dedicated group who can help us kick things off in there and bring a bit of life to it all!

    Thanks so much and see you online here and there hopefully! :)

    Interestingly, both treatments emerged from other cures – Farmacia On Line was originally designed as a heart disease treatment – it’s more well-known use was simply a lucky side-effect. Is customer service fairly accessible 24 hours a day?
