Five Roles I Play in Online Teaching: Revisited

Session Description
In 2005, I published an article entitled Five Roles I Play in Online Courses. Those roles were space planner, space setter, host, connector, and mirror. After more than a dozen years, I am revisiting those roles and reflecting on their meaning after a twenty year span of online teaching. What remains crucial, in my view, is the role of relationships between the faculty member and students, and among students in the online environment.

    Very interesting session. Online teaching is dynamic and consistently evolving, and online instructors must evolve and adapt as well to become more efficient as facilitators of the learning process for our students.
