Abstract

Abstract

  • Online faculty members need to work smarter when they teach online. By applying the seven principles for good practice as defined by Chickering and Gamson in 1987, faculty can make their online teaching experience effective for themselves and their students.


Introduction quote from winona state university

Introduction – Quote from Winona State University

“The Seven Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education provide a common ground for faculty and students in their quest for meaningful learning. As a generally agreed-upon philosophy of "good" teaching and learning, these principles establish fundamental guidelines for quality higher education and can be used as the building blocks for success by faculty, students, administrators and staff.”
