To be an effective online teacher, it’s crucial to master the art of giving feedback to online learners.
This is no easy task.
It takes skill, and a light hand.
Especially when you’re teaching adult learners.
The challenges are many.
In online teaching, simpler is usually better!
Most online students start out feeling overwhelmed – perhaps as early as week one of your course.
Usually, they’re juggling work, family, and a range of other commitments.
As they already feel time-poor and harassed, they often see online learning as complicated and frustrating…
Every online teacher has a particular superpower.
Online teaching already involves several non-negotiable core skills.
At the very least, you’ll need to be:
• Qualified and experienced
• A good communicator (and natural mentor)
• Technologically-savvy, and
• An expert in your field.
A genuine passion for online teaching, and a healthy dose of patience also help.
That’s not a bad skill set!
But there’s one more thing you use to teach online: your personality.
