Increased challenges of synchromodal classes
Increased Challenges of Synchromodal Classes

1) Two-tiered learning experience

  • Online learners…

    • Feel the need for permission to contribute

    • Tend more toward being a consumer than a contributor

  • In the mind of instructor, f2f, and online students

  • Surprise: sometimes online got greater attention

  • Our Goal

    • Comparable value rather than identical experience


  • Increased challenges of synchromodal classes1
    Increased Challenges of Synchromodal Classes

    2) Increased technical challenges

    • New technologies to learn

    • New technologies that might fail

    • Bring changes to class dynamics

    • Need new/adjusted pedagogical strategies

    • Some dependent, and some not


    Types of instructor support
    Types of Instructor Support

    • Before teaching

      • Hand-off work (e.g., producer)

      • Integrated design team (see Koehler, et al.)

         Tech Nav (the latter)

    • While teaching

      • Technology support: technical tasks

      • Teaching Assistant: pedagogical tasks

         Tech Nav (combined)


    Tech nav defined
    Tech Nav: Defined

    • “a graduate student whose responsibility it is to facilitate the interactions among instructor(s) and students in a synchromodalcourse”


    Tech nav responsibilities
    Tech Nav: Responsibilities

    • Before the course

      • Brainstorm, experiment, set up, …

    • During the course

      • Take primary responsibility for technical operation

        • PolyCom, GoToMeeting, Skype, Google Hangouts, WordPress, EtherPad, …

        • Individually and collectively

      • Monitor and facilitate inclusion of both populations

        • What do they see & hear?

        • What are the class dynamics?


    Tech nav benefits
    Tech Nav: Benefits

    • For the instructor

      • Concentrate on teaching rather than juggling and trouble shooting

    • For the Tech Nav

      • Dialogue with faculty at the intersection of technology, pedagogy, and content

      • Authentic engagement in design for learning

      • Experience in a growing area of teaching & learning


    Tech nav future directions
    Tech Nav: Future Directions

    • Exploration of Synchromodal Classes

    • Increased accessibility of Tech Nav

      • Clarify/formalize roles & responsibilities

      • Define & develop means for preparation needed for this work
