The successful provision of instructor support requires not just an appreciation of online pedagogical issues and current web-based teaching and learning tools but a familiarity with institutional policies, an awareness of available resources, an understanding of individual instructors teaching qualifications, and experience, as well as a willingness to engage in change management practices and action learning.
As a framework for managing instructor support a four stage model is proposed for the delivery of information and skills training in a relevant and timely fashion while maintaining motivation and seeking to modifying academic workplace practices. A warning is issued that those providing this support are likely to be called upon to justify and defend online, web-based instruction.
