Internet Pedagogy

I frequently use the Virtual2 Tour of my web site in presentations to other faculty and college administrators interested in web-based and web-enhanced education.

Web Resources for Web Based Instruction is part of the BSC Information Technology Department's Quick Start resources for faculty. It is a great way to get started on using technology in your teaching.

T.H.E. Journal is the Journal of Technology in Higher Education. Free print and e-mail versions keep educators abreast of rapidly-changing technologies for teaching.

Bridgewater resident Midge Frazel provides web-related professional development workshops and resources for educators, administrators, media specialists, and public librarians.

UT TeleCampus Campus Login You need to register to enter this site, but it is well worth the effort. The University of Texas has created an entire virtual campus, which is well supported by online resources developed both at UT and elsewhere. You will not have access to specific courses, but the descriptions and support materials provide a wealth of information about online education.

The University of Texas has posted Principles of Good Practice for Academic Degree and Certificate Programs and Credit Courses Offered Electronically. This can serve as a guide for those of us intending to expand our use of the web in education.

Concerns of Online Teachers in Higher Education was presented by Zane Berge, Ph.D. (who happens to be the director of training systems at my alma mater, UMBC) for a conference entitled Tel Ed 98. Dr. Berge surveyed forty-two teachers regarding their perceptions of the most salient barriers to their online teaching. The central question addressed in this article is to what degree do online teachers encounter the following perennial problems within education: quality, change, accountability, productivity, and access.
The Moderator's Home Page is a growing set of resources for moderators and moderators-to-be of online discussion in both academic and non-academic settings. This is a project of Dr. Zane Berge (see above).
Jim Kapoun of the American Library Association has written an article for librarians, in which he outlines five principles for teaching undergraduates how to evaluate web sites. Students and faculty may benefit from reading this article.
