HFC Pre-Education Program Director Dr. Carolyn Casale will give a presentation in the Faculty Lectureship Award Lecture series via Zoom on Thursday, Sept. 29, at 11:00 a.m.

In her presentation, Casale will speak about her research, which has focused on online education. This research study seeks to understand students’ perceptions of online teaching. The core research question is: How do student perceptions of teaching compare when using online or field-based clinicals?

Gauging student perceptions

Participant data, in the form of reflective prompts, was collected from students enrolled in an early pre-education course at a Midwestern community college. The findings indicated that both online and face-to-face clinicals were beneficial to the development of pre-service teachers, particularly in an early introduction to education course. This is significant to teacher recruitment and preparation, particularly for marginalized and historically underrepresented groups. The flexibility of an online clinical provides greater opportunities to low income and non-traditional students.

This presentation is free. Please join the presentation here on September 29
