The CU Online Handbook 2009 is edited by Patrick R. Lowenthal, David Thomas, Anna Thai and Brian Yuhnke and is integral part of the activities to support faculty in using technlogy at CU Online. This new ebook aims “to provide faculty an opportunity to engage in the scholarship of teaching.”, mainly taking care of “growth in own teaching” and “dialogue with colleagues about teaching and learning”.
In the introduction the authors state:
“This handbook consists of four different sections. The first section is about
trends and issues with online learning. The second section is about technology in action.
The third section includes a brief summary of 25 different new emerging tools and
applications. The last section includes different resources that you might use in your
online classroom. Put together we hope to turn the CU Online Handbook into an
annual publication, a guide to what is new, a celebration of what works and a toolkit for
exploring new territory. Online education holds the promise to change the world. We’re
excited about that future and looking forward to learning the hardest thing of all: How
to teach differently”.
