It is clear that more courses are being offered online each year. With the increase in the number of courses offered, the number of faculty teaching at a distance will also be increasing. Many researchers are discussing concerns that faculty have about online courses, such as incentives, training, technical support, workload, and intellectual property. Yet an additional area of concern may be holding many faculty back. The thought of transferring their teaching style to an online environment may be impossible for some faculty to imagine. This panel discussion will involve four faculty members who currently teach online in various subjects. Each will present information on his/her teaching style, both classroom based and online, and discuss any differences in assignments and assessment.
