Although the majority of our programs are designed to be completed autonomously, expect to receive the maximum support you need from your instructor. Depending on the program you are enrolled in, the level of support and the type of interactions with the instructors might be different but will always maximize success rates and enhance your online learning experience.
“Here at CIBL, you are not alone.”
Qualities of a Good Instructor
An instructor should not only hold a qualifying degree, but also the experience to back up the knowledge with real-life scenarios. A good instructor shares personal experiences to equip students with the right tools to succeed after completing the course.
The last question you should have when taking an online course is wondering where the teacher is. Students should always sense the presence of an authoritative instructor that manages the course and directs students. For every course we offer, there is an accredited instructor that overlooks the progress of each active student and provides constructive feedback and directions.
Students are expected to have questions, and teachers are expected to answer them in a prompt manner. A good instructor does not leave a student hanging, waiting for a response. Whether it is a technical or a subject-related question, a request should be answered quickly, so the student can move on within the course.
Although each of our online programs requires a passing grade, the knowledge you are acquiring matters more than grades. A good instructor invests in time to know and understand the unique demands of each individual student. An ultimate goal for CIBL instructors is encouraging students to overcome obstacles and create a steady workflow so they never fall behind and become overwhelmed.
A good feedback goes beyond the “good job” and “nice work” comments. When receiving feedback from your instructure, expect constructive comments that don’t only point out the positives and negatives of your work but also guide you on how you can avoid mistakes and become a better learner. With this method, students can celebrate their successes while addressing their weaknesses.
Online learning means more than written material. A new era of online educational technology has evolved in the past decades making learning more engaging and interesting. A good online instructor employs a variety of resources and activities to trigger every learning style and facilitate learning.
