Can you ever imagine being faced with a medium that requires neither your presence, nor your lectures and not even your daily interaction with people you teach. Your first reaction to ‘Teaching on the Net’ may just be – ‘Well, that’s not teaching.’
However, with an open mind and the willingness to explore this new avenue, you will find that it is as exciting a medium as print must have been when it took the literate world by storm. The question now remains – how can you use this technology to add value to your teaching skills ? The most significant advantage of this new medium is collaboration of teaching and learning methods for professional as well as individual growth.
Over the last forty years teacher-learner relationships have undergone tremendous changes – the classroom has taken on a new look, syllabi has been reconstructed and so on. The internet takes you much further.
