How To Get Into The 'Flow' In Your Classroom - Csikszentmihalyi !

How To Get Into The 'Flow' In Your Classroom -  Csikszentmihalyi ! | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

By Katie Lepi:


So just how do you learn to get into the flow in your classroom? The ever-lovely Mia MacMeekin made this handy graphic after watching a TED talk by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and reading his book. I haven’t read the book, but the TED talk is really inspiring. It is not specifically geared towards teaching or education, but talks about how to find fulfillment and happiness through immersion in activities – which he calls ‘flow’. If you’re interested in a bit of his backstory, you can read a bit about him here. Mia has extrapolated the ideas of his TED talk and applied them to the classroom.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Flow in the live classroom or in the online setting is both an art and a science. Here's a good overview of Flow with an info graphic that captures some of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's thinking. (Don't miss his inspiring TED Talk http://www.ted.com/talks/mihaly_csikszentmihalyi_on_flow

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine whether a set of instructional practices commonly prescribed to online faculty in the higher education setting were consistent with the expectations of a group of experienced online student participants. Online faculty performance conventions were collected from 20 institutions of higher learning located in the United States. The collective practices yielded three primary domains related to administrative faculty performance expectations in online instruction: Communication, Presence/Engagement, and Timeliness/Responsiveness. Undergraduate participants representing a cross section of colleges and universities in the United States were surveyed to determine their expectations for online faculty as compared to scaled items derived from the lists of participating institutions. The results of this investigation offer practitioners insight into how administrative instructional guidelines relate to the user demands of an informed group of undergraduate online students.
