Teaching Online Facilitating Learning in the Online Environment
In New Hampshire, teachers use a variety of models for teaching online, from posting daily homework assignments to posting
their entire course content online, and everything between. This page will connect you with resources and standards used
by teachers to deliver quality instruction and materials online.
Consider Your Options Carefully As more and more schools and districts move their content online, teaching online will be a greater part of the expectations for teachers. Districts and teachers will have to develop their own philosophy for distance learning and online education within their individual districts.
In Chapter 4 of his book Developing
Faculty to Use Technology, Programs and Strategies to Enhance Teaching, Douglas F. Johnson of the University of Florida talks about moving Toward a Philosophy of Online Education. The Tomorrow’s Professor Mailing List sponsored by the Stanford Center for Teaching and Learning printed an excerpt from the chapter in the book.
The NH e-Learning for Educators Program, originally part of a Ready to Teach Grant from the US DOE to Alabama Public Television, continues on as a program of the NH Department of Education. The program provides online professional development training to teachers throughout New Hampshire.
Through the OPEN NH project, teachers can get online professional development in both content and pedagogy. NH e-Learning for educators also offers Teaching Enhancement courses for New Hampshire educators in online course development and facilitation. Visit the Teaching Enhancement pages on the OPEN NH website for more information.
