Challenges Of Online Education

Students taking lessons through virtual education have no personal touch with their teachers and fellow learners. Even when there are taught through video link and can see their teacher, they still lack the crucial interaction that would make them understand concepts more effectively. Face-to-face communication between learners and instructors can never be replaced with video link. The latter also becomes less effective, when the lecturer has to deal with a large number of students. A student emanating from such a classroom, if it can be called so, is of a lower academic caliber than a learner undertaking the same course from a classroom where there is physical touch with the teacher.

Studying in virtual universities also requires the learner to invest in or have access to internet technology and pertinent equipment, which may increase the cost of education. Without a computer and high-speed internet connection, online education will not take …

Show Compassion to Online Students

  1. In the beginning weeks of class, respond to each student individually. I find that students need the special attention as they are feeling their way in a new learning environment; moreover, I have seen clear evidence that these personal responses lay the foundation for healthy student-teacher relationships.
  2. Use appropriate “feelings” phrases when students are experiencing personal issues such as death of family members, personal illness, or financial crises. Students appreciate hearing phrases like “I’m sorry for your loss”, “I’m hoping for a positive change in your situation”, or “I care about your situation”. Upon using these kinds of phrases, students always express how much the words mean to them.
  3. Reach out to students you haven’t heard from with words suggesting that they are missed. Often students go “MIA” without telling their professors. Once they return, I’ve been known to say things like “we’ve missed seeing you in class”, “so happy

Strategies Instructors Can Use to Help Students Who Lack Motivation

  1. Build Productive Relationships. While this should go without saying for any class, whether it is a traditional or online class, relationships with students always matters. It can have a direct impact on their ability to feel comfortable asking for assistance when needed and that can alert the instructor to potential problems. But developing this type of relationship in a virtual environment isn’t easy and a class that lasts only a few weeks can make it even more difficult. How a relationship begins is with the attitude an instructor holds and it continues with an ongoing intent to be helpful and approachable. Students must know that their instructors care about them.
  2. Carefully Manage Your Communication. All forms of communication that instructors have with their students matter and must be cultivated with care that the intent of message is clearly made and the tone is not likely to be perceived in a

Lectures at Harvard Law School

Professor Kingsfield was one of the most highly regarded professors in the whole institution. It seemed as if he had perfected the craft of conveying knowledge to his students. “How many other professors could so exactly delineate the subject, and so completely dominate class, that no small measure of the students’ independent interest would vary the progress?” It seems like Kingsfield was a true expert in his craft and with his perfection it revealed he had been at this a while. He displayed his craft by giving lechers that were referred to as divine by his students.

Precision is exactly how he went about lecturing to his students. Any time he wanted to lead his lesson in the right direction he knew exactly whose name to call on. Sometimes this even meant questioning people who he knew came unprepared but sometimes the student’s mistakes can help make a point to …

Academic Educator vs. Subject Matter Expert

From my experience, I have discovered there are two distinct perspectives of the work that educators perform. One perspective is a result of the traditional role of an educator, who is working full time at a college or university and has dedicated their career to the development of their instructional practice. They are working to become a teaching expert and usually have strong subject matter expertise, along with a highly developed academic background. This type of educator has dedicated their career to helping students learn, conducting research, publishing, and furthering their scholarly expertise.

The other perspective of an instructional practice is based upon those educators who are working as adjuncts. Online teaching was a thriving career up until a few years ago, when the for-profit industry came under intense scrutiny. Approximately ten years ago, there were more jobs than adjuncts and now that trend …
