Teaching Online – Best Practices

Starting January, 2011, HSB will launch its first complete online MBA program. To prepare for this undertaking, a teaching forum focusing on online instruction, was held on November 11.   The forum included demonstrations by Drs. Ira Yermish, Karen Hogan and David Lees on the tools and best practices for teaching online.  A rich  Q&A discussion followed.    Also supporting this endeavor is a Blackboard site created for HSB On-Line Course Best Practices.  This site houses  sample syllabi, course content, discussions, instructional videos and other best practices appropriate for online instruction. A link to a video of the November 11 Best Practices session  is also there. Please contact Ira Yermish at iyermish@sju.edu if you would like to be enrolled in this course site.

A series of monthly faculty development sessions focused on online instruction best practices is being planned for the Spring semester – stay tuned!


  1. I gave you access to this site, John. Looking forward to seeing your material!

  2. Who is currently responsible for granting access to the best practices site? As a new adjunct, I started an Evernote notebook to capture my tips and tricks. Perhaps there’s a better place for me to store and share them.
