  3. 3. Students
  4. 4. <ul><li>This presentation will focus on distance learning strategies and science based training at the advanced degree level. </li></ul><ul><li>The presentation follows an existing university of Westminster learning module in which trainee researchers develop practical skills in biochemical engineering and set up a ‘pilot plant’. </li></ul><ul><li>It explores elearning strategies that would be appropriate for supporting researchers and their tutors throughout the course. It includes examples from existing elearning courses. </li></ul>Objectives
  5. 5. <ul><li>The value of e-learning </li></ul><ul><li>is in its capacity to facilitate communication and thinking </li></ul><ul><li>and thereby construct </li></ul><ul><li>meaning and knowledge </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>eLearning works : </li></ul><ul><li>When it builds on its communicative and interactive features </li></ul><ul><li>When there is a dynamic integration of content and context </li></ul><ul><li>When a supportive Community of Inquiry is operating </li></ul><ul><li>When at its core is a collaborative constructive transaction </li></ul><ul><li>With focused, motivated learners </li></ul><ul><li>If tools are user friendly and suit both learners and instructors </li></ul><ul><li>When multimedia is used </li></ul><ul><li>When barriers to use are minimised </li></ul>Key points to consider
  7. 7. Community of Inquiry Cognitive Presence is the extent to which learners are able to construct and confirm meaning through sustained reflection and discourse
  8. 8. Community of Inquiry Social presence is the ability of participants to identify with the community (e.g., course of study), communicate purposefully in a trusting environment, and develop inter-personal relationships by way of projecting their individual personalities.
  9. 9. Community of Inquiry Teaching Presence  is the design, facilitation, and direction of cognitive and social processes for the purpose of realizing personally meaningful and educationally worthwhile learning outcomes

  22. 22. Conclusions “ The challenge is to design and create a context ( teaching presence) with appropriate levels of social presence, which is congruent with the content and the reinforcement of the educational goals that will enhance cognitive presence and the realisation of higher order learning outcomes.” Garrison and Anderson, 2003
