Derek Harding

Novel Approaches to Learning On-line


Introduction
Introduction

  • Main points

    • Learning and teaching online is not the same as conventional approaches (even though there may be some similarities)

    • Newcomers tend to make the mistake of thinking about the technology rather than the learning it helps facilitate

    • Newcomers also tend to make the mistake of thinking about content rather than pedagogical design


Considerations
Considerations

  • What approaches work best?

    • Inclusive: participants work as a team

    • Empowering: students are allowed to take a considerable degree of control over their own learning

    • Flexible: responsive to changing needs of students and the contexts they are working in


Examples
Examples

  • Simple Interactive lectures

  • Media rich activities http://chic.tees.ac.uk/meteor

  • Webquests http://edweb.sdsu.edu/courses/edtec596/about_webquests.html

  • Discussion groups

  • Empowering the students


Conclusion
Conclusion

  • Learning is more of a group activity with tutors acting as facilitators

  • Students use their peers as well as tutors to help them learn

  • Requires trust between the learners and tutors

  • Good pedagogical design results in rich learning experiences for students and a better working environment for staff
