Bring pedagogy and cognitive science to online learning environments

Online Teaching at Its Best: Merging Instructional Design with Teaching and Learning Research, 2nd Edition, is the scholarly resource for online learning that faculty, instructional designers, and administrators have raved about. This book addresses course design, teaching, and student motivation across the continuum of online teaching modes--remote, hybrid, hyflex, and fully online--integrating these with pedagogical and cognitive science, and grounding its recommendations in the latest research. The book will help you design or redesign your courses to ensure strong course alignment and effective student learning in any of these teaching modes. Its emphasis on evidence-based practices makes this one of the most scholarly books of its kind on the market today.

This new edition features significant new content including more active learning formats for small groups across the online teaching continuum, strategies and tools for scripting and recording effective micro-lectures, ways to integrate quiz items within micro-lectures, more conferencing software and techniques to add interactivity, and a guide for rapid transition from face-to-face to online teaching. You'll also find updated examples, references, and quotes to reflect more evolved technology.
* Adopt new pedagogical techniques designed specifically for remote, hybrid, hyflex, and fully online learning environments
* Ensure strong course alignment and effective student learning for all these modes of instruction
* Increase student retention, build necessary support structures, and train faculty more effectively
* Integrate research-based course design and cognitive psychology into graduate or undergraduate programs

Distance is no barrier to a great education. Online Teaching at Its Best provides practical, real-world advice grounded in educational and psychological science to help online instructors, instructional designers, and administrators deliver an exceptional learning experience even under emergency conditions.
