As online courses and programs in the colleges increase year by year, the training of online instructors has not kept up with "the demand for excellence," according to Dr. Rena Palloff, one of the authors of The Excellent Online Instructor (2011). This workshop discusses research into the characteristics of good online instructors and courses, the pedagogy paradigm shift for instructors, as well as current faculty development models such as Quality Matters, all of which contribute to producing the excellent online instructor. Faculty training models that are developing in the colleges are also discussed. By Dr. Rolando Regino of Victor Valley College.
