Abstract

There are many challenges and dilemmas confronting teacher educators when transforming a face-to-face course into an online course. Online environments differ in significant ways from the dynamics of a traditional classroom. Teacher educators must conceptualize and "repackage" course content, course structure, student/teacher communication systems, and assignments when making the instructional transformation. The course redesign is even more significant when the student population differs in equally dramatic ways. This roundtable session will present results of a study that examined the experiences and design dilemmas of three educators as they converted a graduate-level instructional design course from face-to face instruction for US teachers on a university campus to online instruction for high school teachers in Shanghai, China.
