Competencies of an online educator

Fifty-One Competencies for Online Instruction (.pdf) (via Jane Knight) – While I’m generally not a big fan of checklists (I’m more fond of “guiding principles” – they are intentionally less prohibitive at the application level, giving the educator greater freedom), this is a useful paper for new online instructors. Some of the competencies are quite vague (like “harness technology”), and measurement criteria is not included.
