    Teaching Online - How To Get There

    Get Paid To Learn

    Teaching is the best job in the world. You help people. You spend your work life energy participating in an endlessly fascinating process.

    Online teaching adds geographical independence and a big dose of entrepreneurship to the life of a teacher.  I've found that to be a very good thing.

    As an instructor and program advisor for the University of Wisconsin-Stout's Online Teaching Graduate Certificate Program I teach online classes every semester.  Another very important part of my job is helping people find work.

    I try to keep our students informed of new jobs as I find them. However,  every time I search I find thousands of online teaching jobs.  I can't republish them all but I do have an archive of online teaching  e-Jobs on my E-Learning page.

    Empower Yourself

    The best think you can do is learn to search for the e-Job you want.  Let me show you where you can find those job leads for yourself.

    I'm convinced, that at this very moment, the perfect online teaching job is waiting for any talented teacher with the right combination of subject matter skills, e-learning training and professional networking.

    The E-Learning Employment Triangle

    e-learning employment triangle e-learning opportunities come from your subject matter expertise, 21st century networking skills and e-learning and teaching experience

    The Power of Networks

    With the proper qualifications most work will come through your professional network. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't search directly for work and put together the necessary paperwork to land the online teaching jobs you seek.

    Here are two job search engines that produce results.  Take the time to set up accounts and upload fresh resumes or CVs.  Be sure your online e-portfolios are polished and ready for a critical eye.  Then start searching!

    HigherEd Jobs

    One final hint:  These snapshots represent searches for specific advertised jobs. Even if the job you are looking for isn't advertised at the school you are interested in, dig into their application process and file a resume.  Go fishing. Don't under estimate the power of getting your application into the Adjunct hiring pool.

    Finally, take the initiative. Learn the job search systems. Fine tune your keywords and check the results regularly.
