Choosing an Instructional Delivery Method: Synchronous or Asynchronous?

Presented by Radhika Prout
Session Type: Conversation

As online learning continues to grow in popularity, more and more instructors are being faced with the challenges that come with it. Online courses, like traditional courses, must be instructionally sound and lead students to the desired learning outcomes. However, that’s not all. To be successful, online learning must also match student individualities and the nature of what it seeks to teach. It must fit the learners’ schedule, immediacy, and their need to access a live instructor. How can an online instructor satisfy all of these requirements? In this session, we will discuss the two basic types of instructional delivery that can satisfy all of these requirements, which one you should choose to use and when, as well as the pros and cons of each. No technology is required from participants during this session.
