“I just read the new book you wrote on Managing Online Instructor Workload as I was in the process of running a community of interest here at Ball State University on “Saving Time in Online Teaching.” I thought your book was great. At first, I didn’t expect to see so much anecdotal information in it, but now that I think about it, this was a stroke of genius because it allows us to see the techniques contextualized.”
“Managing Online Instructor Workload breaks the pattern of prior distance learning books with its research-based orientation by including a broad range of experience. Readers will enjoy discovering they are not alone in coping with online instruction, but will also be surprised that the volume provides realistic strategies to address those challenges. Rather than attempt to discuss everything about online learning, Conceição and Lehman honed in on this pervasive issue. The result? A valuable resource to encourage greater faculty persistence and adoption.”
“At a time of rapid growth in online programs, Managing Online Instructor Workload is an indispensable resource for faculty and administrators who seek to ensure high quality learning experiences for students and faculty satisfaction in maintaining work-life balance.”
“As Conceição and Lehman know better than anyone, "being there" for your online learners is one key to course and student success. But for many, creating such a sense of presence can come at a price -- measured in time, workload and quality of life. In this important book, the authors bring us comfort by way of much-needed strategies on how to design and facilitate online courses that don't draw the life out of us while we are trying to breathe life into online learning.”
“This is a must-read for all online instructors who strive not only to provide a high-quality learning experience for their students but also maintain a quality life of their own!”
“Do you teach online? Do you need sleep? Here is the first book that I know of that will allow you to do both. With the emergence of blended and fully online learning, we are all being pushed to new territories with unknown workloads, requirements, and needs. Managing Online Instructor Workload is that special response we have been waiting for…no more endless hours wasted online attempting to be an effective instructor.”
