Webbed Feat: Organized Communication through Blogs - 0 views

  • I don't think we could survive without the Google Group as a way to connect and support one another, through the orientation at least. However, there are no organized forum/email discussions. Do the blogs replace that completely? If so, where is the facilitation?
    • Illya Arnet
      Good point. The google group provides focus of discussion and through the people invovled in discussion, one can go off to the according blogs and delve even further.

      I had been thinking about the preassure from participants on facilitators to act as a teacher. (more guidance, etc). I don't know why, but reading this made me think about how a facilitator may feel about the little control they have over participants contributions. Teachers are used to exercising control.

  • My view is that probably too much is expected of learners that are new to a participatory approach to learning. They need time to get to a decent level of understanding of the subject matter and to a new way of learning.

Effective Online Facilitation - 0 views

  • Online teaching is moving from an emphasis on web content to a more interactive structure that recognises the social and interactive elements of knowledge construction, and to pedagogical approaches that enable student-centred (e.g. problem-based, inquiry-based, discovery, and authentic learning) which are found to be extremely effective for online learning
  • Effective online facilitation should engage, guide and motivate learners, and provide a safe and conducive environment for learning and communication exchange for all learners regardless of their prior experience and predisposition or otherwise towards online learning technologies.
  • it requires special skills by the facilitator to progress conversations from trivial surface level discussion and social exchange to deeper level engagement
