On March 13, 2020 I launched the Online Teaching Tips microblog series. I created the series because of the immediate need for Washington State University faculty to move their in-person classes to 100% online. I have worked in the field of professional communication for more than 25 years. I have been a clinical associate professor of strategic communication at Washington State University for more than eight years. I have more than six years of experience building and managing online courses. In response to #COVID19 and stay-at-home orders, I created this series as a place I can share some of the knowledge I have picked up over the years and insights I continue to acquire through research and experience.
I focus on the needs of WSU faculty and students vs. the general public. I include references to expert resources, best practices, tips and techniques in various subject areas with the goal of providing quick, digestible, and immediately applicable tips.
