Online Education as an Academic Discipline
This presentation places online education in a disciplinary context, charting historical, pedagogical, institutional and cultural dimensions of e-learning. The evolution of online academic conferences will be of particular relevance to this event. Online education will be seen in a broad sense, and as a pan-disciplinary set of meta-skills beyond subject matter expertise. After the presentation per se, questions and comments are welcome, particularly about the current emergency remote teaching situation and what new structures are forming for online educator development events and organizations.
