This Best Practice presentation will share the third phase of a research study. Phases I & II were devoted to student online learning preferences. Phase III investigates the teaching styles of faculty in online environments. In a pilot test, a survey instrument was administered to faculty in the College of Education. The results generated an individualized report for each faculty member, highlighting their teaching style strengths. In a follow-up one-to-one consultation with faculty members, each shared their current teaching practices and perceived needs. Based upon their teaching strengths, the faculty member was provided with a customized spectrum of teaching tips suited to their particular online teaching preferences and needs. The teaching tips were gathered from the research literature on pedagogy and from the authors’ work with faculty peers. At the conclusion of the teaching semester, faculty members were interviewed to determine their perception of the usefulness of the tool.
