Podcast: Talking Online Pedagogy

What’s the best way to teach online? In the first of an occasional series on (online) pedagogy, we get some perspective on how to engage students through online-discussion-based learning.

I believe that my job is that of an inspirationalist. I don’t necessarily think of myself as a teacher, or an instructor, or a college professor.

Jan Hess, an online instructor in Health Information Management Systems, describes her method in this podcast in a chat with Curtis Bryant, Online Course Administrator.  Jan says that “being an inspiration” helps students to get involved and not get discouraged as they engage in the online course.

She also talks about how online courses make a perfect learning delivery method for health information management, a growing and increasingly digitized field that opens several career opportunities for its students.
