How do we know if online teaching is “good”? With the growth of online education, higher education is challenged with how to effectively measure the quality of online teaching. Many institutions have turned to the “tried-and-true” evaluation tools that they have used in the traditional classroom, such as end-of-course student surveys, for this purpose. While those may give us a starting point, such tools are not always constructed appropriately for use in an online course.


During this COIL Conversation Ann Taylor, Director of the Dutton e-Education Institute, will share some of the tools and practices that have been developed at Penn State to measure the quality of online teaching. Based on extensive research and established best practices in online education, these resources have proven to be a valuable resource not only to administrators, but to the faculty themselves who are eager to learn more about “how things are going” in their online classrooms.
