Teach Beyond Your Reach

An Instructor's Guide to Developing and Running Successful Distance Learning Classes, Workshops, Training Sessions, and More


Taking a practical, curriculum-focused approach, this guide for both new and experienced distance educators allows them to develop and deliver quality courses and training sessions. Providing practices and examples, and surveying the tools of the trade, this fully updated and revised edition covers key issues including instructional design, course craft, adult learning styles, student–teacher interaction, and strategies for building a community of learners. Discussing how distance learning enables students of all kinds to earn college and graduate degrees, professional certificates, and a wide range of skills and credentials, this book details the rapidly expanding role of distance learning in higher education and the types of organizations that now offer Web-based training courses and teleseminars to their employees, clients, and other associates.
