Comparison studies have focused a great deal on the similarities and differences between online and face-to-face learning. However, there has been little research on how faculty think about and plan differently when teaching the same course online and face-to-face. In this exploratory study, we investigated faculty perceptions about instructional practices in online and face-to-face learning environments. The results suggest that faculty need additional faculty development and/or instructional design support to combat misconceptions about what works and does not work in online learning environments.
