Walking in Their Shoes: Empowerment through Practice

Tuesday, February 02 | 3:15PM–4:00PM | Texas Ballroom Foyer, Fourth Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
This presentation is designed to share an institutional approach to online faculty preparation and engagement through a "facilitator as student" approach to competency development. The process will showcase an experiential learning strategy and outline a 180-degree change for new faculty who are engaged as students in an online teaching preparation course. I will also discuss the lessons learned at the university where I work for building success and the critical components for creating an environment for online engagement.

OUTCOMES: Examine the skills that support faculty preparation for the virtual environment * Explore the concept of online facilitator readiness * Identify some characteristics for successful online preparation and engagement
