The following is the article’s abstract-take a look if it interests you! : )

“Distance education has become a reality in our field, with many programs, courses and professional development opportunities proliferating every year. This panel of distance faculty provides examples for participants so understand the many ways that active learning, critical thinking, decision making and self-asssessment are effectively incorporated into online learning environments. Participants will also be invited to analyze their own classroom activities to fit online possibilities.”

Did you find the suggestions useful? What are your thoughts on online education?

Cheers,
