    TEIS Webinar Series:
    Award Winning Online Teachers & Critical Competencies for Online Teaching

    Date: Tuesday, December 11, 2018. 12:00-1:15 pm (EDT)

    Locationhttps://iu.zoom.us/my/fpawan

    Description: The Teacher Educator Interest Section (TEIS) webinar series ends the year with a discussion with Kiran Budhrani, an Instructional Designer on E-Learning from the University of North Carolina, Charlotte.  The discussion will focus on timely research on online teachers and teaching. The explosive growth in online education at the higher education level, (1.6 million in 2002 to 6.7 million students in 2015), has resulted in the need for more faculty to teach online and has changed the role of the teachers and their teaching practices. The research undertaken by Budhrani and her team involves the perspectives of 8 award winning online instructors on:

    • the core and emerging roles of online instructors
    • the key competencies for successful online teaching

    The webinar will be in a conversation format moderated by Faridah Pawan, the TEIS Chair Elect-Elect. The webinar is free to all TESOL International Members and everyone else interested in the topic. (See the attached poster for additional information)
