Teaching Philosophy

Learning as an online student
makes for a great teacher.

How do you become a skilled teacher of online classes? We believe you have to be a student first. That’s why a key aspect of the VHS teaching philosophy is experiencing classes from the student’s perspective. You’d be amazed what you can learn by switching places. We also believe in keeping things real, as in real assessments of student work, real schedules, and really trying to replicate the best aspects of the classroom experience. We believe in online learning where teachers build communities, encourage discussions, and provide insightful feedback.  Online does not mean out of touch. In fact, at The VHS Collaborative, it’s exactly the opposite.
