Tackling Balance Online

  1. 1. Tackling Balance Online Setting the Context
  2. 2. Finding a Framework <ul><li>Collins and Barge describe an online instructors role as pedagogical, social, managerial and technical. </li></ul><ul><li>Youngblood, Trede & diCorpo propose “setting the scene, monitoring participation, facilitating critical thinking and encouraging student collaboration” as the main roles. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Finding a Framework <ul><li>An online instructor is planner, model, coach, facilitator and communicator (Heur and King 2004). </li></ul><ul><li>We had to find a conceptual framework within which to examine strategies – or, more simply, strategies for what? </li></ul>
  4. 4. Pennslyvania State Report <ul><li>Authoring Strategies </li></ul><ul><li>Teaching Strategies </li></ul><ul><li>Course Improvement & Revision Strategies </li></ul><ul><li>Institutional Strategies </li></ul>

  7. 7. We wonder what will happen…. <ul><li>Will people jump in and start to write? </li></ul><ul><li>Do we have enough structure in place to encourage participation? </li></ul><ul><li>What more can we add to entice collaborative work? </li></ul><ul><li>Will people have as much fun as us? </li></ul>
  8. 8. What we hope will happen <ul><li>Each team will post information about managing online teaching on their wiki page. </li></ul><ul><li>People will experiment with different layouts, colours and types of information. </li></ul><ul><li>We will all learn more about teaching on line and about how wikis work. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Web 2.0 Work-Life Balance <ul><li>ENJOY ! </li></ul><ul><li>Gerry & Liz </li></ul>
