    A.W. (Tony) Bates has authored a book titled Teaching in a Digital Age.  The book is available as a free download.

    I have followed Tony's writing for several years.  He has written extensively about online learning and distance education.  I really appreciate one of Tony's sayings.....

    • Chapter 2:  The nature of knowledge and the implications for teaching

    • Chapter 3:  Methods of teaching:  campus-focused

    • Chapter 4:  Methods of teaching with online focus

    • Chapter 5:  MOOCs

    • Chapter 6:  Understanding technology in education

    • Chapter 7:  Pedagogical differences between media

    • Chapter 8:  Choosing and using media in education:  the SECTIONS model

    • Chapter 9:  Modes of delivery
