An Examination of the Relationship Between Online Class Size and Instructor Performance... - 1 views

  •  
    "With no physical walls, the online classroom has the potential to house a large number of students. A concern by some is what happens to the quality of instruction in courses with high enrollments. The purpose of this research was to examine online class size and its relationship to, and potential influence on, an instructor's performance. Results were mixed indicating that class size had a positive relationship with some the variables meant to measure online instructor performance and a negative relationship with others. Online class size was seen as having the most concerning relationship and potential influence on an instructor's ability to provide quality feedback to students and for his/her expertise to be used consistently and effectively."

    Study based on associate faculty at large for-profit university, "average class size was 15.88 students with the smallest class consisting of one student and the largest class consisting of 29 students" counted at the end of the class with a max of 30.

    "This study revealed that as the class size of an online class increases, an instructor's expertise may not be used as effectively or consistently, the quality of feedback that the instructor provides to students may decrease, and the instructor's overall performance is seen as decreasing. This could raise concern for some, as feedback and expertise are two critical areas that support student learning. It is through feedback and the sharing of expertise that an online instructor can clear up misunderstandings in course content, guide students in acquiring new knowledge, and address those "teachable moments" that are often referred to in classroom teaching."

Preferred Teaching Methods in Online Courses: Learners' Views Mansureh Kebritchi JOLT 2014 - 3 views

    This looks very interesting and proof of breaking isolation I think. Gives me another thought on why doctors are so bad at treating people like humans--the doctors were all top level students who interacted only with the content and never learned to interact except with those vinyl dummies used to simulate people.

Passive Learners in MOOCs - 0 views

  •  
    "'Passive,'" say the authors, "can be a, somewhat, provocative word." And so there is some controversy in the idea that some people may find value in passive learning. We would call such participants "lurkers" today (with no change in the provocation). This paper examines the idea within the context of two social science courses offered at the Open University. That's probably not enough scale to provide any reasonable set of results (why don't researchers in this field do anything at scale?) but at least it's a conversation starter. "Perhaps," suggest the authors, "engagement (with material, with students, with tutors etc.) is critical, but not necessarily 'active' participation." Not surprisingly, the authors find there is a case to be made. -- Stephen Downes, OLDaily

Open teaching philosophy is about sharing - PanARMENIAN.Net - 0 views

  •  
    This is an interview I gave to an Armenian magazine while I was in Yerevan. Some good stuff. For example: "What is the open education? The open teaching philosophy is about sharing and what's really significant about it -- it's not sharing content like textbook or lecture. The idea is that you share the actual experience you have or practice you want to talk about."

    Thanks Cris, my wife is just starting a design review of two psychology courses for a Canadian Open Resource project and this will help:-) On an unrelated subject...I'm reading the "Pocket Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology - An integrative handbook of the mind." by Daniel J. Siegel (2012). Chapter 19 The Neurobiology of We "The self is both embodied and embedded. These ar not two seperste domains of experience, but instead are the essence of how the mind emerges from the energy and information flow within and between us."
