Abstract

Online learning offers many opportunities for students, including ease of access and flexible schedules. However, there are barriers unique to online courses. This paper describes how four university educators used collaboration and learning styles to create online methods courses for a teacher preparation program at an urban Historically Black University. The implications for such collaboration include promoting “kinship” and community among faculty and learners in an online learning environment.
