Un charmant petit air de "c'était mieux avant" non ?

Krysta Hammond's curator insight, September 19, 2013 4:40 PM

Jeroen Bottema's curator insight, October 22, 2013 3:58 AM

"I make a case for asynchronous discussions and their value in developing higher order thinking. I recently facilitated a webinar How to Promote Critical Thinking Skills in the Online Class targeted to educators teaching undergraduate or high school students virtually. I include slides from the presentation at the end of the post. Below I highlight the required learning conditions for effective online discussions, and include excerpts from peer-reviewed papers that describe how asynchronous online discussions can promote deep, rich learning"
