From the Back Cover
"The Online Teaching Survival Guide" offers faculty a wide array of theory-based techniques designed for online teaching and technology-enhanced courses. Written by two pioneers in distance education, this guidebook presents practical instructional strategies spread out over a four-phase timeline that covers the lifespan of a course. The book includes information on a range of topics such as course management, social presence, community building, and assessment. Based on traditional pedagogical theory, "The Online Teaching Survival Guide" integrates the latest research in cognitive processing and learning outcomes. Faculty with little knowledge of educational theory and those well versed in pedagogy will find this resource essential for developing their online teaching skills.
Praise for "The Online Teaching Survival Guide"
"At a time when resources for training faculty to teach online are scarce, Judith Boettcher and Rita-Marie Conrad have presented a must-read for all instructors new to online teaching. By tying best practices to the natural rhythms of a course as it unfolds, instructors will know what to do when and what to expect. The book is a life raft in what can be perceived as turbulent and uncharted waters." --Rena M. Palloff and Keith Pratt, program directors and faculty, Teaching in the Virtual Classroom Program, Fielding Graduate University
"Developed from years of experience supporting online faculty, Judith Boettcher and Rita-Marie Conrad's book provides practical tips and checklists that should especially help those new to online teaching hit the ground running." --Karen Swan, Stukel Distinguished Professor of Educational Leadership, University of Illinois Springfield
"This book blends a fine synthesis of research findings with plenty of practical advice. This book should be especially valuable for faculty teaching their first or second course online. But any instructor, no matter how experienced, is likely to find valuable insights and techniques." --Stephen C. Ehrmann, director, Flashlight Program for the Study and Improvement of Educational Uses of Technology; vice president, The Teaching, Learning, and Technology Group

I was the instructor at Santa Clara University for a faculty online class on how to teach blended and online courses. The Media Services staff selected Boettcher and Conrad's book as our class text.
We used the authors' insights into the stages of optimal online class development and the Ten Core Learning Principles as the foundation and structure for our class. The book is organized so that auxiliary tips can easily be referenced from the core principles and class stages. This organization brings the central processes of online teaching to the forefront; yet it allows for other important information to be integrated into the core without the reader being overwhelmed by the amount of helpful material.
The faculty who were class participants unanimously praised Boettcher and Conrad's book. Some said they were so inspired by the authors' sound and effective pedagogy that they used it to create better face-to-face classes. I would recommend this book without qualification to beginning as well as experienced online instructors. By Jean Ponder Soto
