Abstract: At the university-level, online instruction in behavior analysis is achieved using a variety of pedagogical tactics. Examples of these tactics include different methods to deliver content, ways to facilitate learner engagement, and approaches to effective feedback application. In addition to written formats, instructional content may be delivered using either or both live and recorded lectures, with or without active student responding. Asynchronous discussion boards may be used in a variety of formats to facilitate learner engagement, including large and small group contact, embedded video, and written contributions. Instructor or peer feedback may be delivered in different ways, including audio, video and written formats. Presenters in this panel are experienced online educators who have used and evaluated all of these varied practices in past and current coursework. Each panelist will discuss one of the practices and offer an assessment of the advantages and disadvantages of each practice based on professional experience. Panelists will take questions from the audience and the moderator.
