Summary

Summary

Novice and experienced educators who have considered moving some or all of their language courses online will find this text an invaluable starting point and resource throughout the process. In non-technical prose with emphasis throughout on excellence in pedagogical practice, the text takes both the new and experienced language instructor through the nuts and bolts of online teaching practices and uses multiple examples of online instructional conversations to illustrate these practices. Teaching in asynchronous written, asynchronous aural, synchronous written, synchronous aural and combinations of these environments are discussed and exemplary practices provided for each. An excellent place to both begin and augment language teaching online.
