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

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

Definitely an element which seems to be missing in modern technical communication. Love the personal element - teaching students to take the time and the patience to write an actual letter - instead of the quick often emotionless text.

Dr. Deborah Henderson uses her course Announcements to increase student engagement with the course content and herself and to reinforce and expand upon course concepts. She writes, "Taking in all the weekly posts at once, I can copy individual posts that I think are really insightful and incorporate them into my general comments - giving the students not only a model for good post content, but also a sense that the instructor is reading what they write and guiding their experience inside the course. This method also lets me focus my thinking and say things better and more articulately than I would have in a face-to-face class."

Engaging Students in the Global Classroom: Teachers ‘leading the learning

diane gusa's insight:

There seem to be four different basic components of teacher behavior, based on two different forms of knowledge transmission. The first form of transmission relates to the content being transmitted and the second is the process by which it is transmitted. In terms of content, information can be either offered as specific pieces of knowledge or facts (e.g., two plus two equals four) on the one hand, or larger pieces of information which might be considered as developing concepts (such as the concept of addition) or developing processes (such as a mechanism for performing addition). In terms of the process of transmission, information can be delivered by either telling (providing the knowledge) or asking (seeking to find the knowledge).

4 Alternatives to Letter-Grade Evaluations

4 Alternatives to Letter-Grade Evaluations | Pedagogy and technology of online learning | Scoop.it
What is the rationale behind the use of letter grades? Why have we used the A’s, B’s and C’s to evaluate students for so long? Does this method still work? Did it ever? Traditionally, the letter grading method has served multiple purposes: to indicate student aptitude, to provide feedback and guidance, and to offer motivation. Any grading method should meet those needs if it is to survive. Recently, new methods of grading have come on the scene and they’re worth exploring because they offer fres
