Finding Your Online Voice offers a thought-provoking discussion of innovative approaches to technology-based distance education. Editor J. Michael Spector focuses on how highly experienced teachers conceptualize and organize online classes. Best practices and guidelines for effective online teaching as well as a set of instructor skills specific to online learning environments are featured in the volume. Distinguished researchers recount stories from a richly detailed, personal viewpoint on topics such as:

*teaching orientations and philosophies;
*approaches to learning and instruction;
*orientation to and uses of technology;
*models and methods of technology-based teaching; and
*reflections and self-assessments.

This work is appropriate for professors, students, and professional practitioners working in the areas of distance education and educational technology. It is intended as a primary resource in courses on technology integration.
