College lectures online
- Collège lecturers can convert to online teaching: Here is how:
- Model for many freshman "lecture" classes. Teaching online. Reinventing the teacher career. Teaching is creating conditions in which students learn.
- But suppose they don't. Could a college do that instead?
- No point in simply converting all the lectures.. Just convert the best lectures.
What are the best lectures?
- Those that best meet the student needs.
- Two measures go into that: Student performance and student satisfaction.
- Since student study preferences vary, there is probably no single best lecture.
- But If multiple lectures are available on the same subject matter, there is a procedure for evaluating them on the criteria above.
- Thus a college could develop an evaluated set of lectures that should be better than the work of any individual professor.
- It could even offer lectures for specific learning styles.
