Coming to Campus to Teach Online

But while I see a lot of logic and value in telecommuting, I want to make a case for having online educators, in particular, physically present on campuses. My motivation and reasoning stem not from a sense that physical presence is crucial to student learning (it isn’t), but from my understanding of the political landscape of academic environments.  There are a host of reasons why online educators — particularly full-time contingent faculty members — should resist the lure of full-time telecommuting. If we hope to build an educational environment that truly values online spaces and online learners — not to mention non-tenure-track faculty members — we need to make ourselves impossible to ignore. The best way we can do that is to maintain both an intellectual and physical presence in our academic communities.
