Expertise as Teaching Presence Online Tools for Interactive Learning Experiences
The Community of Inquiry model has become one of the most common frameworks for designing online and hybrid courses. Substantial literatures have developed around its three elements: cognitive, social, and teaching presence—though the third has proven the most nebulous and hard to define. Much of the discussion about teaching presence focuses on its connection with social presence, emphasizing strategies like video as a way to improve instructor immediacy. This session reclaims a neglected aspect of teaching presence by demonstrating how free online tools can be used to create interactive learning experiences that leverage the instructor’s expert-level content knowledge.
