This paper presents the process that university faculty experienced when moving from instructing face-to-face to instructing online. The faculty committee developed a model to depict the developmental stages of learning to teach online. Each faculty member brought to the group a variety of skills and knowledge about using technology, understanding adult learning, experience with on campus teaching and the desire to take the challenge of learning to teach online. Looking at their own lessons learned, the faculty share their stories as they begin in the Novice Use stage, move through the Supplemental Use, Integrational Use and Adopted Use stages. All faculty members agree that they have not reached the final developmental sequence and moved into the New Paradigm Use stage. Use of this model and the lessons learned has supported faculty in becoming a better on campus and online teacher.
