Going the Distance: A Handbook for Faculty Who Teach Online provides faculty—full- and part-timers—with the contents of a first-rate teaching workshop for a fraction of the price.
Going the Distance: A Handbook for Faculty Who Teach Online is an excellent starter kit for individuals new to teaching online, especially in the time of COVID-19. It has practical advice and best practices that are easy to understand. The text is more of a broad overview of tools and pedagogy for asynchronous online environment, and that is exactly what teachers new to the online setting need. The text also serves as a quick and easy reference book for those who are more experienced with online teaching and learning. The text seems to target asynchronous online education more, but it is easily adaptable for synchronous online education. Going the Distance: A Handbook for Faculty Who Teach Online is definitely worth obtaining. I will be recommending this to faculty who are new to online teaching and learning.–Jason Vickers, Ph.D.,
