Teaching presence has been examined in asynchronous online learning environments through the Communities of Inquiry (COI) framework of Anderson, Rourke, Garrison and Archer (2001). But what is teaching presence like in classes delivered through online synchronous platforms? This presentation shall discuss initial findings and arising themes of teaching presence based on the public classes of Dr Nellie Deutsch, as documented through recordings made available at WizIQ. The study hopes to surface a new perspective of examining teaching presence as interpreted by a novice-online teacher-researcher.
