Innovations in Online Learning: Moving Beyond No Significant Difference
Tuesday, January 1, 2002
Colleges and universities are offering thousands of fully online courses, ostensibly altering centuries-old methods of teaching and learning. Few of these courses, however, make significant improvements in either the cost or quality dimensions of student learning; instead, they frequently replicate face-to-face pedagogies and organizational frameworks. Are you taking advantage of IT's capabilities as you design new learning environments, or are you simply migrating your on-ground approaches online? Using examples drawn primarily from the Pew Grant Program in Course Redesign, this presentation will discuss how IT can be used to surpass traditional modes of instruction.
