Methodology of Teaching Online in the COVID Era
COVID forced schools everywhere to online instruction and to grapple with what our digitally enhanced 21st century reality means for the future of education.
COVID-19 created a frenzied dash to online learning and a new interest in Instructional Design and online practices. Throughout this process and despite the rush, instructors were interested and invested in exploring design elements, pedagogy, methodology, and best practices. What followed were many wonderful opportunities to discuss and tease out the principles of online andragogy and pedagogy (from here on referred together as “pedagogy”) that are important not only for online teaching but for the reality of teaching students in any modality in the 21st century.
