Pedagogical Principles in Online Teaching

Opportunities and Challenges

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review

Abstract

In this paper, we describe the distinct features of fully online courses, explain their rationale and usefulness within a diverse offer of courses and corresponding teaching methods in undergraduate and graduate university study programmes. We then discuss opportunities and challenges in light of the seven pedagogical principles that govern the teaching at our university. We also present a case study that illustrates how both opportunities and challenges were met in two “first-mover” fully online courses during Fall 2014. The experiences from this case study are discussed in terms of to what extent they met the pedagogical principles and observations unrelated to the pedagogical
principle are shared.
