Resources for Effective Teaching Online


Here is a list of resources for effective online teaching that I have sorted through. Note: this is a list designed to get a pretty good version of your current course online. I did not intend for this list to allow you to completely overhaul your teaching this summer (look at something like Nilson’s book for that).

In no particular order:

  1. Read Chapter 9 of Minds Online.
  2. Here is a PRIMUS paper that discusses having your students create videos to homework solutions. This, and oral exams via Zoom, could be good strategies for those concerned with cheating.
  3. People from Minerva have been great. In this article, they give basics about teaching math online.
  4. Watch this video on a simulated Minerva class. I particularly loved her multiple-choice calculus question: the choices are an outline of a critical points problem, and the instructions are “select any steps that are incorrect or unclear.”

Are there other great, short resources that instructors can use to adapt what they are already doing?
