Teaching_Presence_in_the_SUNY_Learning_Network.pdf (application/pdf Object) - 2 views

  •  
    In the present study we review ongoing issues of pedagogy
    and faculty development, and their relationship to student satisfaction, and reported learning in SLN. We
    provide an overview of the SLN program, and summarize a conceptual framework for our current
    research on higher education, online learning environments. This framework integrates research on how
    people learn [2], with principles of good practice in higher education [3] and recent research on learning
    in asynchronous learning networks (ALNs) in higher education [4]. We also present results of a follow-up
    study on one aspect of the model, "Teaching Presence".

Fostering Communities of Learning in Two Portuguese Pre-School Classrooms Applying the ... - 0 views

  •  
    "This study provides evidence on how young children can start to direct their learning plans and take responsibility in responding to their problems through active participation in planning and assessment, and it therefore contributes to our understanding of how ECE classrooms can operate as Communities of Learning. In any Communities of Learning, there is always a dual focus: To empower children as learners, using the concept of learning as change in participation, but also to keep a close and critical eye on what the nature of the change is and its relationship with valuable learning. Edwards (2005) calls it "learning as a resourceful action" and argues that it "allows us to examine the processes of learning as well as the outcomes and to consider how they are pedagogically supported" (p. 58). Her argument for research that highlights the cognitive potential of sociocultural approaches to learning can contribute to the research about Learning Cultures in kindergarten (Hodkinson et al. 2008).
