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
