Josie Eldred's curator insight, September 9, 1:41 AM

15. I've included this resource fairly low down on the list because it's an informal blog post rather than a published article and also mostly discusses online identity in relation to open education, but I nonetheless feel that it contains some great sentiments. Two that stood out to me were: "But identity is not a single construct; we have multiple identities related to our different roles and contexts (e.g. daughter, mother, partner, friend, student, lecturer). This is the case for both digital and embodied identities ..." (Cronin, C., 2014) and, "In open online spaces, students and educators are not limited by real-name identities, nor by rigid role definitions. Students, particularly, may experiment with new identities – not just social identities, with which they may have some confidence, but learner identities and public/civic identities." (Cronin, C., 2014) Given that the author of this blog, Catherine Cronin, is a lecturer at the National University of Ireland, focusing specifically on online and open education, digital identity, and social media in education, I feel that her authority on the topic of online identity is worth acknowledging and including.

Blended Learning in English Language Teaching: Course Design and Implementation

Blended learning is an area of ELT that continues to be of interest to practitioners in the field. Despite this, little can be found in the literature on blended learning course design or detailed descriptions provided of blends used in ELT contexts. This publication, which contains twenty case studies from around the world, addresses this deficit by illustrating blends being employed on EAP, ESP, Teacher Development and general EFL courses.

 

Nik Peachey's insight:

Very proud to have written one of the case studies (pages 65 -75) for this book. It explores the award winning Blended Learning in ELT teacher training course I designed for Bell Educational Services.
