Making your transition to online education slightly smoother

Streaming Professor

Intent

Streaming Professor was created to share experiences and reflections on online education to aid educators making the transition from in-person to on-line education, recognizing that unlike in-person education, there is much less accumulated experience with online education for academics to draw from. There is a dual intention of this resource:

  • To make the life of educators smoother: No-one would coudl have forseen the rapid transofmration of education that has occured in 2020. Almost online education has transitioned from a relatively niche educational experience to one of the primary means that material is delivered. Whether or not you expected 
  • To enhance the quality of the online experience: The other dual intention is to improve the online experience from the perspective of students.
