Applying the Seven Principles for Good Practice to the Online Classroom | Faculty Focus

Applying the Seven Principles for Good Practice to the Online Classroom | Faculty Focus | Designing for learning | Scoop.it
Almost 25 years have passed since Chickering and Gamson offered seven principles for good instructional practices in undergraduate education.

While the state of undergraduate education has evolved to some degree over that time, I think the seven principles still have a place in today’s collegiate classroom. Originally written to communicate best practices for face-to-face instruction, the principles translate well to the online classroom and can help to provide guidance for those of us designing courses to be taught online.

Notetaking In The Digital Classroom: A Blended Learning Approach | Designing for learning | Scoop.it

Note-taking is part-and-parcel to the academic learning experience.

Often during lecture, but also experiments, interviews, and field research, understanding what’s important and recording it for future reference is central to the learning process–curation before we called it that.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, November 28, 2012 11:24 PM

Since creative and critical thinking can be taught, I wonder why it isn't (in many American schools)?


One of my proudest moments as a classroom teacher was begin called to the principal's office to be accused by an outraged parent of "Teaching my child to challenge authority!"  


Ah, a job well done. The satisfaction lasts a lifetime.

Are we less intelligent than our ancestors?  Does Siri make us lazy? Einstein reportedly said "I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots."  Is the easy access to information making us knowledge experts or making us stupid?

The science of teaching

The science of teaching | Designing for learning | Scoop.it

Eric Mazur was the opening speaker at the ALT-C 2012  conference in Manchester UK this week. ...

 

… is that a focus on pedagogy and how students learn applies to all teaching, online or offline, to large groups or small groups, in physics or another discipline. If we are teachers we need to find ways to make our students think, become aware of and confront their misconceptions, to learn how to learn and realise that learning is about understanding, more than about the ‘grade’.

 

According to Eric Mazur

‘You can forget facts, but you cannot forget understanding’.

 

One question that I have always had about the teaching of science through discussion, based on my own experience is:

How do you prevent students from compounding their misconceptions through interaction and discussion with equally confused peers?’

I think the answer to this question might lie in Eric Mazur’s work on learning catalytics, which as yet I don’t know anything about.

E-learning is made for differentiation. Understanding the learning styles of your online learners (and designing to accommodate those styles) is part of being a professional e-learning teacher and designer.
