Abstract: One of the challenges in higher education courses is to improve learning authenticity or reducing the gap between what being taught at school and what being used in the real world. In this paper, we describe a 6-step model to employ learning authenticity in online courses. Our model infuses characteristics of authentic learning with Madeline Hunter’s Lesson Planning Model. We implemented the new model in an online Introduction to Sociology course, and received positive feedback from the students after implementation.
