Independent Study Opportunity in Online Teaching

I am pleased to offer an opportunity for independent study in the spring to a CON graduate student who is interested in teaching online in an academic setting.

The focus of this independent study is online teaching in a class of undergraduates from a wide variety of disciplines. You will learn about the principles of effective online teaching during the first seven weeks of the spring 2015 term and then co-teach an online course with me (Joni Tornwall) in the College of Education (ESEPSY 1159, Online Learning Strategies and Skills) during the last seven weeks of spring semester. Please see this example of an Individual Study Form that a student developed for her independent study. She also kept a blog that tells her story throughout the independent study experience.

If you think you might be interested in a similar experience, please contact me. I would welcome an opportunity to talk with you about your goals and what you need from an independent study in online teaching.
