Classrooms and online classes:
There are several differences between classroom classes and online classes, while you are teaching in a classroom, you are communicating with students with your eyes, ears, talking and body language, it is easy to explain what you are saying and making virtual moves or signs so it will seem on their faces if they understood or not, it is not quite easy to control them and the mess they may do but at least you can express your anger and see their response, but online classes you may depend on emailing or chatting behind the screens, so you cannot really deal with the expressions of your student, you may need to explain some information in another way and make your words more touching the point, grading your students would be harder as you depend on the written answers only.
But in the field of writing it’s pretty easy to grade your students because writing depends on words, making sentences and clear phrases, making meaning expressions and right grammar, so you do not face most of the problems that other freelance instructors face while teaching online.
Most of the great and famous instructors announced that they had problems in the beginning either in learning how to be a good writer or in teaching others how to be a good writer, as everything in the beginning is hard and needs time to manage and being adapted.
Teaching online doesn’t only depend on emailing and making assignments, but also you can upload the lessons in videos and getting the feedback of your students and their questions in comments under the video, there are many shapes of delivering the information to the students but the point is not the way you give the info, but the kind of info.
You have to present the information in a simple interesting way that the student couldn’t ever forget, giving them advice’s that will never dismiss and being kind friendly instructor that students love and respect.
The great online writing instructor especially in online creative writing classes will always have a plan, systematical way and materials and have schedule, scheduling will help you and the students organize time and when is the time to exercise and revise, you may not specify a time like the traditional classes work, but you will organize the classes sin the way that suits and encourages students to study well with passion and positive energy.
The lack of information or experience is considered a weak point in your work, try to work on yourself and read more in your field as you can receive a sudden question from a student in a point you didn’t read about before so you will be in a critical situation that you will not like at all.
Reading the experience of other old writers and reading their blogs, reading books in the field of writing or guess what, learning online will enrich your knowledge, yes you can watch to videos too and taking classes in the same field to get the new information and give it to the student.
The gap between generations is a week point too, as you need to read and learn more about the new techniques and methods of teaching the new generation, the new generations is not easy going at all and the young is totally different, to communicate well with them you need to learn more about what is going up with them nowadays especially technological channels like social media don’t hesitate to make accounts on Facebook, tweeter and YouTube to get in touch with them in the way they understand and deal with the daily updates in their life.
If you think now about being an instructor and give online writing classes keep in mind that you will create a great minds in the future that will speak to our minds also and build up a great society that we all will be proud of, this is one of the great tasks that any human should respect.
