Online Teaching Skills and Competencies

We at OUA strive to bring advice and knowledge about the changes in the high school and post-secondary education environments. Part of our  mission that has been brought to the forefront is to help teachers become more aware, proficient and comfortable teaching their chosen subjects through an online channel. The study below highlights a few of the skills new online teachers will likely need to educate themselves on.
