Cyborg Teaching: The Transferable Benefits of Teaching Online for the Face-to- Face Cla... - 2 views

  •  
    Abstract
    Critics of online education often assume that traditional classrooms offer the most meaningful form of learning. Some instructors equate physical presence with intimacy, engagement, and effectiveness, though others like myself have discovered that presence and engagement are equally available in an online setting. It is time to reassess what counts as "effective" learning and consider how online education and online technologies can enhance rather than diminish student learning. This development in my own thinking as a once firm believer in the face-to-face classroom came from a one-year experience of developing and teaching my full-time course load from a distance. In addition to discovering new possibilities in online teaching, I found that best practices applied in the online classroom can be transferred to the face-to-face classroom to enhance student learning in any environment. For example, online discussion boards, consistent e- communications, course content videos, and online conferencing are tools that can be implemented into the face-to-face classroom-merging the benefits of embodied presence with the less limited boundaries of technology. When guided by a pedagogical focus on creating effective student learning, online technologies offer higher education a meaningful way to meet the needs and expectations of 21st century learners.

Resistance is Futile: Cognitive dissonance, temporal refusal, and the e-learning enviro... - 1 views

  •  
    "Considering the science fiction trope, "Resistance is Futile", the author proposes that the promotion of "best practices" sublimates us into the domination of a particular educational philosophy. Recognizing this type of oppression provides space for temporal refusal - withdrawing from the potentially assimilating "Borg" when it threatens to be disadvantageous to education. Her conclusions lead the author to suggest the need for a critical reflexivity in teachers to identify and take advantage of opportunities to resist the absorption of distinctiveness in the online educational environment."

From the classroom to the keyboard: How seven teachers created their online teacher ide... - 1 views

  •  
    "This qualitative study explores the professional identity development of seven first-time online instructors around the United States, with particular emphasis on their expressed perceptions of their teaching self in an online setting. We argue that several essential elements need to be addressed and balanced in the lives of new online instructors in order for effective teaching and learning to occur, including some control over course design and teaching, attention to projections of teaching persona or presence, developing and maintaining social aspects of the course, structure and planning, and effective communication with students. These areas of importance characterize the online teacher identity as significantly and necessarily different from that of a teacher in a face-to-face class; the instructor's sense of teacher self is not an extension of that in a traditional setting, but rather it is a unique creation specific to the online context (Paloff and Pratt, 1999, 2001)."

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."

    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.
