Online Instructor Competencies
Each competency is comprised of Knowledge and Praxis.
Knowledge: The ability to perform a particular task, elaborate on a theory, etc.
Knowledge competencies generally only require a single example or demonstration as evidence, e.g. the creation of a particular course element or resource, whether in a “live” course or a sandbox.
In a colloquial sense, this is where course participants can “talk the talk” before they “walk the walk”
Praxis: The ability to perform as a practitioner in the sense of doing something, either in the present or regularly.
Praxis does not include rehearsal or training for which the “real” action in question will happen in the future. Praxis can also mean application - the putting of theory into practice.
Praxis competencies generally require three examples of usage in “live” courses within the past 12 months as evidence. Multiple examples demonstrate the ability to perform the task or apply the theory independently and consistently.
