Hiring, training, and supporting great online teachers are at the core of every effective online program. How can we create a data-driven system to link hiring, training, professional development and instructor evaluation in a way that is also transparent, motivational and predictive?
At Giant Campus, we started with research, walking the halls to take notes on how our best teachers were consistently delivering outstanding results. We identified six key roles that are crucial for effective online instructors to master. We’ll describe these six roles and talk about the process we’ve been following since – using these roles as a starting point for creating a consistent sourcing message, retooling our hiring processes, and developing checklists and rubrics to support effective “Walking the Halls” routines and open and transparent teacher evaluation.
This presentation was highly rated at iNACOL’s 2010 Virtual School Symposium, so we’re taking it online! Come join us to look at the integrated model we’ve developed and review the complete evaluation rubrics we’ll share with you. Then jump on the microphone and discuss how your school is tackling the perennial challenge of finding, training, and supporting outstanding online teachers.
