๐Ÿ“‘ Move to Online Learning: 12 Key Ideas

Bookmarked Move to Online Learning: 12 Key Ideas by dave dave (davecormier.com)

I got asked by a long time colleague if I was willing to do a post of all the things that Iโ€™ve learned in the last eight weeks about moving online. Not โ€™emergency teachingโ€™ but actual lessons about people moving to teaching with the internet. Iโ€™ve worked with over 100 faculty at my own institution this past few months, taking them through a 1 week intensive course. Iโ€™ve also been in constant contact with folks from around the world both through my interviews on http://oliah.ca and in endless backchannels and side chats. Hereโ€™s what I got.

Dave Cormier reflects upon the current crisis and his experiences associated with supporting online learning. In summary, he shares 12 ideas. This feels like a return to ideas discussed in the Rhizo MOOCS that content is actually people and community as curriculum. One point I particularly liked was the idea of ‘teacher presence’ and possibly writing a post correcting misconceptions.

You can easily write one post responding to all the posts on a given subject, highlighting themes and correcting misconceptions. Less duplication for you, and it still shows students that youโ€™re involved.

Dave Cormier and Ashlyne O’Neil have also elaborated these ideas further in an online book that is designed to serve as a short course.
