Teaching Online about Teaching Online: Four Pillars for Success

Research


This session is an exploration of the literature that underpins a new online faculty development course at Carroll College that will be in its third iteration by the time of the USMoot. The course is called "Fundamentals of Online Teaching," and draws from a comprehensive review of the scholarly literature surrounding online teaching. The course is taught in four two-week cycles that are focused on four general principles of teaching online that emerged from the review of scholarly literature: be present, be (cognitively and socially) engaging, create quality content, and know your tools. This session is divided into four roughly 10-minute segments that focus on each of these principles in turn. In each segment of the presentation, the literary basis, application strategies, and student reflections for each principle are presented and discussed.

Ryan Hazen
Instructional Technologist / Moodle Administrator
Carroll College

I am an instructional technologist with CCIT at Carroll College in Helena, Montana. I administer Carroll's self-hosted Moodle and manage our TechSmith RelayTurnitin, and Zoom accounts.  I help design classrooms and videoconferencing rooms, install classroom and videoconferencing technology, and work directly with professors to design, implement, and improve their pedagogical deployment of an increasingly diverse array of tools. My office is in the Corette Library, where I help support the Sandbox classroom, the technology checkout program, and the TechSaints student tech support team.

The Corette Library is also the venue for the annual MountainMoot, where I am honored to be Chief Mootineer. I'm also on the Board of Directors of NWMET, the Planning Committee for XLi 2015, and the Program Committee of MoodleMoot US 2015. I have been a presenter at a handful of other conferences and trainings.

I spent four years as an eighth grade Communication Arts teacher with East Helena Public Schools, where I ran a paperless classroom as part of their 1:1 iPad initiative using MyBigCampusGoogle AppsNearpodEducreationsPowerschool, and a few other fun apps. I developed and deployed a common-core aligned curriculum and gradebook that helped identify and offer differentiated support to individual learners in discreet common-core strands. Some of my students may remember weeksheets, the color-number system, and the grammar game as well.

I have a B.A. with a major in English Literature and minor in Creative Writing from UNC, Chapel Hill and an M.Ed. in Curriculum & Instruction from MSU, Bozeman.
