The Art Of Teaching Online

Introduction

The Art of Teaching online is about moving from pouring facts and figures into learners heads to pouring energy into what is right with each student in the form of attention.   When you teach online keep in mind the following point.

Teaching online is not about your course content. It’s about the interactions you have with your learners and the way you facilitate learning related to the course content.

By the end of his learning opportunity you will be able to  transfer your teaching from content delivery to connecting to the essence of who you are with the essence of who your learners are by fostering student engagement, stimulating intellectual development, and building rapport.
