Nursing Faculty Attitudes and Practices Related to Online Teaching
Online education as a teaching methodology is relatively new in higher education in comparison to traditional face-to-face instruction. There is often concern that the quality of online classes is inferior and that academic rigor is compromised when faculty are not engaged with students in a classroom. The purpose of this pilot study was to assess nursing faculty attitudes and practices regarding online teaching. Findings indicated that overall, faculty feel that achievement of student learning outcomes in online and hybrid settings is comparable to face-to-face and report excitement with most aspects of teaching online.
