Beginning Pedagogy for Online Teaching and Learning
Translating sound pedagogical practice from face-to-face learning to an online environment can be a daunting prospect. Teachers who have become proficient at facilitating group work, motivating learners, and developing a classroom community know that these are important aspects of helping students learn. Moving out of the “real world” in which this has been comfortably achieved challenges educators to find new ways to ensure that students still have the benefit of proven best practices. This session will explore the pedagogical connection between best practices and online learning, and offer ideas for building a digital bridge.
