Title:The New-to-Online Instructor: Conceptions, Desires and Expectations
Author(s):Kammer, Jenna
Subject(s):education in library and information sciences
distributed learning
Abstract:This paper presents the findings of a phenomenological investigation of online teaching, as experienced by six faculty members who have never taught online before. The findings demonstrate the qualitatively different (and sometimes similar) ways the participants describe their understanding and experience of online teaching and learning. Insight into these understandings and experiences is achieved through the use of semi-structured, in-depth interviews. Shared experiences were identified through a process of analysis that includes an attempt to understand the experiences and categorize them into clusters of meaning. It is concluded that faculty who are new to online teaching have conceptions, desires and expectations for their teaching experience, which come from prior knowledge as an educator.
