Online Book Study: Managing Online Instructor Workload
Facilitator: Steve Hansen (Center for Teaching Excellence)
Asynchronous Blackboard Book Study Occurring from September 24 - October 19
About the Book:
Instructors, who want practical advice on managing the workload of teaching online, will find helpful guidance from Managing Online Instructor Workload by Simone Conceicao and Rosemary Lehman.
"This book focuses on the strategies instructors use to manage their workload when teaching online. We examine the issues and challenges of online teaching from institutional and instructional standpoints and discuss how they can be recognized and addressed. Further, we relate stories of instructors in different teaching positions and present comprehensive accounts of strategies they use to manage workload." (From the preface of the book)
About the Online Study:
The online book study is for faculty who teach online. Participants will receive a copy of the book in exchange for participating in the asynchronous discussion. We will begin by getting to know one another through introductory posts. Weekly readings and discussion questions will give online participants the opportunity to share about their online teaching practices and to learn from one another about managing their online workload.
The first ten registrants will receive a free copy of the book.
Sorry, the registration is complete and the Book Study is full.
