  • Establishing Teacher Presence in the Online Environment: Guidance of Best Practice

    The interactive forum will share guidance on research recently completed at Ashford University. The purpose of the research was to obtain a best practice view of strategies for establishing exceptional teacher presence in the online classroom, taking into consideration the cultural evolution of online instruction, recent technology developments, a focus on continuous quality improvement, and inspirational instructor creativity used to enhance critical thinking and exceed student learning objectives. Of key interest were inspired interventions on the part of the instructor with the goal of being ‘seen’, and enhancing student success through building more effective and accessible relationships with online students.
