Distance Learning - Faculty
Teaching at a distance presents to the instructor challenges, opportunities, flexibility,
and new and sometimes better ways of offering instruction to students. In many ways,
teaching online is similar to teaching face-to-face. On the other hand, challenges
provide new and innovative ways of overcoming obstacles and opportunities to create
new and better ways to provide teaching experiences.
Teaching online obviously requires a certain amount of technical knowledge, but also
requires the instructor to rethink their pedagogical assumptions and necessitates
an evaluation of many aspects of one's instruction, including assessment, course materials,
delivery, and communication.
If you are considering teaching online or would like to have some help with your online
courses, please contact the distance education specialist for training and support.

"The counselors and administrators at Hancock challenged and encouraged me to pursue my dream of designing my own clothing line and opening my own retail store. They helped me map out a path to success that includes transferring to a four-year university. I am on the right track thanks to the knowledgeable staff that gave me the courage to change my major from nursing to fashion management."
