Am I still good online? Examining the differences in pedagogy and personality between mediums
Abstract: Based on an analysis of seven semesters of qualitative student course comments, differences in instructor style and pedagogy can be seen between online and face-to-face sections. This inquiry explores how authentic relationships with students and instructor personality may be impacted by the medium in which we teach. As a result, the rapport built with students may impact student engagement, retention, and student-teacher connection (Glazier, 2016). This brief paper outlines the analysis of student comments and provides suggestions for addressing the pedagogical challenges that exist between course delivery methods.
