We invite you to join us at the launch event for the #Openteach: Professional Development for Open Online Educators open online book by Orna Farrell, James Brunton, Caitriona Ni She, and Eamon Costello.
About the book
In this book we aim to share the knowledge, resources and research generated by the #Openteach project, which aimed to create an evidence-based and open professional learning approach to support educators to teach online.
Teaching online is different, in this book we explore this difference with the aim of supporting educators to develop their online teaching practice and knowledge of online pedagogy.
The book combines the theory and practice of teaching online and contains examples and ideas, drawn from the voices of online educators and online students. We consider key themes in online pedagogy such as presence, interaction, supporting online students, and synchronous and asynchronous engagement.
Why an open book?
#Openteach: Professional Development for Open Online Educators is an open online book published on the Pressbooks platform. The book is further evidence of our commitment to open access publishing through a Creative Commons License (CCL). The principle of openness was at the heart of the #Openteach project. All of the resources and intellectual outputs were CCL and openly shared through social media and the project website. The #Openteach online course was freely available and participation was open to anyone, from anywhere, with the capability to join an online course.
