4 Misconceptions of Online Learning
August 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
“How can faculty and instructional designers address misconceptions about online learning as they transition from reactivity to proactivity following the COVID-19 pandemic?”
In March 2020, the shift to online learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic occurred quickly, leaving many higher education institutions with just a weekend to prepare. The result was Emergency Remote Instruction (ERI), and not true Online Learning structure and design. As we move from reactive to proactive design planning within the online learning environment, we need to squash the ERI-created misconceptions that we have become familiar with over the last two years.
Based on the EDUCAUSE Article with the same name, this session will:
- Identify 4 common misconceptions about online learning
- Discuss creative teaching solutions to counteract the corresponding misconception
- Describe how technology can be utilized to solve online teaching challenges
- Identify how creating positive and engaging learning environments to promote success for online students
