Philosophy Educator Using Learnist to Enhance Online Classroom

Philosophy Educator Using Learnist to Enhance Online Classroom | Digital Philosophy | Scoop.it
Greg says, “For the last five years, I’ve been teaching online and hybrid college courses in Philosophy, developing course shells into comprehensive learning environments for classes like Ethics, Critical Thinking, and Introduction to Philosophy. This required scouring the web for quality resources on the topics I was teaching, so I could provide them to my students, typically non-majors taking these courses to satisfy general education requirements. It also involved developing a number of my own resources, ranging from web-pages on key points and concepts, to handouts and worksheets, interactive practice quizzes, pages of links to online texts, and even embedded videos.”

Online Conference – Truth | The Aristotelian Society

Online Conference – Truth | The Aristotelian Society | Digital Philosophy | Scoop.it

In celebration of the 125th year of the Proceedings, we are proud to announce the start of the first ever Online Conference of the Aristotelian Society: a weeklong event featuring classic papers from our back catalogue, commentaries on these papers delivered by contemporary philosophers, and an online-based discussion forum that is open to everyone. We hope that you’ll enjoy participating in the discussion.

Robert Farrow's insight:

If The Aristotlian Society are finally embracing online dissemination then surely the rest of philosophy will eventually follow... even if they are a bit late to the party!
