EDU2688 Online Education II
This is a major course in teaching English (as well as other subjects) online as described above. This helps the students in the preparations needed to be able to effectively teach English online. The principles learned in this course can also be applied to teaching other languages as well as other lessons online as long as they have the required specialization on the particular subject they want to teach.
The students will initially learn to create their online lessons. They will base their courses on the standard or traditional teaching courses that they have learned earlier and may also develop their own lessons and courses. Midway through this course will be hands-on online teaching. This will ensure that the candidate student will become fully competent online teacher upon completion of this course.
The class will equip the students to become competent online teachers. As they participate in actual, hand-on online teaching, they will learn to apply the lessons they have taken up in their previous classes in this course thread or series. They will face the real challenges of teaching online, and also benefit from the satisfaction and rewards of doing so. By the end of the course all students should:
- Be able to search for potential online students.
- Have learned the ways to create their online lessons and be ready to teach any online lessons.
- Have experienced firsthand the challenges of online teaching and able to properly handle them.
- Understand how to develop their lessons in ways that they can impart knowledge and wisdom to students who are miles away.
- Learn humbleness in accepting how other people perceive things and be able to focus on their teaching.
- See the importance of proper decorum, dress and grooming as well as professional etiquette even when they are at home while teaching online.
- Be able to help others who also want to teach their expertise online.
“A CLC award signifies that the student has attained the knowledge, (through either prior education or experience), equal to or greater than the student would have learned in a traditional college course.”
