Best Online Courses in Teaching 2019

Enrolling in an online course is a fantastic way to invest in your education without the commitment and inconvenience that an on-campus class may demand. An online course gives you access to the class you want to take through a web-based classroom environment.

What is an online course in teaching? An online course in teaching is an introductory class that acquaints students with the pedagogical context for the practices and principles that inform teaching. This class may cover the role and responsibility of a teacher as well as the activities and classroom interactions that make for successful teaching. Educational theory and its practical application will likely be explored through case studies and critical analyses. From this coursework, students should develop their own teaching philosophy and foundation for lesson plans.

Honing ones’ skills as a teacher and learning about the profession’s historical context can impart the skills necessary to succeed in a classroom. This benefits aspiring teachers, but it also serves any student who seeks to develop leadership skills.

There are a variety of factors used to calculate the cost of enrolling in such a course. Your location, school of choice and the number of credits are all important, but regardless of the cost, you may be eligible for scholarships that can mitigate the expense.

Taking an online course in teaching is a great step towards pursuing a career in the educational field. If you aspire to be a teacher, this class is typically a prerequisite for your career goals, but it can also provide skills that lead to other educational positions, such as administrator, curriculum development specialist, teaching supervisor or educational consultant. Other potential positions, outside of a school environment, include training director or leadership specialist.

Enrolling in an online course in teaching is easy once you find the right school. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
