    Monday Morning Mentor: How Can Online Instructors Better Manage Their Workload?

    Monday Feb 3
    (All Day)

    February 3, 2020

    On demand at http://9nl.pw/MUMentors

    Brian Udermann, PhD, Director, University of Wisconsin-La Crosse

    About 60-70% of faculty believe that teaching online courses is more work intensive than teaching face-to-face courses. Factors include course preparation before teaching, managing sometimes unwieldy online discussions, and even fielding student questions around the clock. While teaching online can be time demanding, faculty can use a variety of strategies, including simple, quick tasks to do before the course starts, to better manage their workload while instructing their online course. Most importantly, when instructors can keep their workload to a manageable level when teaching online, they will reduce stress, which translates to a better overall experience for both instructors and students.
