In the previous chapters, teachers shared their online teaching stories. They talked about how the online environment affects them and their teaching, about the tradeoffs they find, the issues associated with technology and teaching online, and about the adjustments they feel they make. They also shared the benefits and the losses they notice as a result of their teaching online. While all these data are fascinating, it is now time to put things in perspective and find out how, if at all, these stories intersect and help us coin a better understanding of the teachers’ experiences in the online environment. This chapter focuses on the central ideas that are related to teaching and will discuss the first four core categories identified: Teaching, Teaching Demands, Teacher Needs, and Teaching Dimensions.
