Best Practices for Online Teaching
Lessons Learned
1. Strong interaction between students and
faculty – always give prompt feedback.
2. Use active learning techniques to enhance
learning
3. Set standards and communicate high
expectations.
4. Anticipate technical problems – develop
backup plan for submitting assignments.
5. Use a rubric to ensure grading consistency
and share rubric with students in advance.
6. Promote academic integrity by using
plagiarism detection and remote exam
proctoring tools.
7. Use smaller groups to encourage discussion
and collaboration among students– especially
important for those with experience.
8. Use e-portfolio and development of toolkits
to demonstrate outcomes.
9. Use tools to assure quality of online course
design (i.e., Quality Matters).
10. Require annual updates on course content.

accessible.

• Don’t assume everyone has adequate
computer skills.
• Don’t assume everyone has adequate
hardware and software.
• Expect more hand holding in the
beginning.
• Allocate more time – both students and
faculty.
• Upfront development is very time
consuming – plan accordingly.
• Don’t assume it is easier – it requires
much more discipline.
• Go with your gut when admitting
students.
• You can’t just load PowerPoints and use
on campus assignments.
• Distance education is not for everyone!
