It’s scary online

I like this article. My favorite part is when it says, if I may paraphrase here, that professors are both terrified and excited by online learning, but more excited than terrified.

The gist seems to be that the more we use it, the less scary it gets and the higher the quality. A sound conclusion for most scary new experiences.

I am a language teacher and researcher. In any given term, I may teach beginning or intermediate Spanish courses, English for international students, and foreign language teaching methods for teacher candidates and future faculty. As a teacher, I consider myself pragmatic (not married to any particular approach), oriented towards critical pedagogies in particular, a technophile, and always on the prowl for new ideas.
