'How to Teach Online' by Tom Ogletree

Tom Ogletree writes the following for the General Assembly Blog:

As the spread of COVID-19 continues to transform daily life around the world, we at General Assembly have been paying close attention to how the virus is upending education: 

  • Over 1,000 colleges have been impacted, representing more than 13 million students.
  • Teachers serving students in elementary, middle, and high schools are doing their best to adapt, with varied levels of training and support. 
  • Community colleges and nonprofit training providers, already struggling to stay afloat, are facing existential threats.

And this is only the beginning—we are entering a new world of work that will look radically different as the pandemic progresses. …

At General Assembly, we are grappling with this challenge as well: We recently made the decision to bring all of our in-person Immersive courses online to support more than 5,500 students globally. …

That’s why we’re offering free access to How To Teach Online to anyone [click here to register].This short-form course—led by one of our resident experts in online instruction, Maria Weaver—is specifically designed for instructors transitioning to a remote format. Whether you’re a seasoned online instructor or a first-time Zoom user, sign up to access new tools, discover essential resources, and gain best practices for impactful online instruction. …
