[Photo by pasukaru76] found in Jesse Stommel's article on Hybrid Pedagogy Melbourne High School teachers are more than just subject teachers - which is the same for teachers everywhere.

The text

The text | What does it mean to be a connected educator? | Scoop.it
Manifesto for teaching online - Written by teachers and researchers in online education. University of Edinburgh MSc in E-learning 2011

Distance is a positive principle, not a deficit. Online can be the privileged mode.

The possibility of the ‘online version’ is overstated. The best online courses are born digital.

By redefining connection we find we can make eye contact online.

‘Best practice’ is a totalising term blind to context – there are many ways to get it right.

Every course design is philosophy and belief in action.

How to get students to participate in Online Discussions… | What does it mean to be a connected educator? | Scoop.it

Students’ participation in online discussions is central in online learning courses as it contributes to a participative and meaningful instruction where learners build their knowledge in a constructive way with instructors, colleagues, informal sources and by reflecting upon the process.

Debbie Morrison is posting a triplet series on how to create effective discussions in an online learning environment. In part I she presents components which make online discussions effective, namely:

 

1.  A solid course design 

2.  Guidelines and expectations for students  

3.  Well constructed topics/questions

4.  The existence of a skilled facilitator or moderator

5.  An assessment component
