Summary

This panel will explore the issues, opportunities, and challenges inherent in teaching information science course online. All panelists have extensive experience teaching online as well as face to face, and ask common questions about their teaching experiences and students' learning experiences. However, they teach a diverse range of courses, use a variety of delivery modalities, and work at widely differing universities. The purpose of the panel is to raise the common questions about online education that stem from these diverse backgrounds and engage the audience in a meaningful discussion about the changing nature of information science education.
