Applying the 7 principles for good practice to the online classroom
Faculty Focus
Dr. Oliver Dreon, the director of the Center for Academic Excellence at Millersville University, writes: "Almost 25 years have passed since Chickering and Gamson offered seven principles for good instructional practices in undergraduate education. While the state of undergraduate education has evolved to some degree over that time, I think the seven principles still have a place in today's collegiate classroom. Originally written to communicate best practices for face-to-face instruction, the principles translate well to the online classroom and can help to provide guidance for those of us designing courses to be taught online."

The 6 habits of highly effective mentors
The Huffington Post
Thanks to movie characters such as Mr. Miyagi in "Karate Kid" or Robin Williams' engaging teacher in "Dead Poets Society", the prevailing mentor archetype hews closely to the word's dictionary definition: "a wise and trusted counselor or teacher" or "an influential senior sponsor or supporter."
