Mona Engvig, Ph.D. has just published a new online learning book, Online Education: Practical, Theory-Based Advice for the Instructor.
This book is designed for educators interested in improving their online teaching skills and also for anyone considering teaching online courses.
"Online Education" is published by Cognella Academic Publishing, which offers classroom-tested titles for the national market that recapture the teachable moment and create a more resonant learning experience.
Online Education: Practical, Theory-Based Advice for the Instructor assists educators with facilitating learning in the online classroom, highlighting the role of key pedagogical aspects in delivering content and facilitating student interaction. Designed to help teachers give their students the best possible learning experience, the book focuses on the actual process of learning as the core theoretical base upon which online effective learning environments are developed and sustained.
The book discusses how adults learn and how faculty can best assist them in reaching their educational goals. Online Education addresses how andragogy, problem-based learning, gamification, and cognitive apprenticeship relate to facilitated online education. The book also includes the results of several studies of online students and their professors, sharing advice on how to succeed in online classes. It gives online students a voice, presenting essays detailing their perspectives on their learning experiences and their views of effective and ineffective instruction.
Research-based yet practical in approach, Online Education is written in an accessible style and features a wealth of advice on the real-world application of its concepts. Developed with educators new to online teaching in mind, the book is well-suited to upper-division and graduate level education courses, as well as courses helping educators transition from face-to-face to online teaching.
