Am I the only one who wants to be able to find info like this again …. and thinks it’ll be lost in the YG
The following is copied from the YG
I chose to put this reminder in this thread rather than reactivate the one in this message:
This is because the facilitators will be discussing the article by Bridget Arend, Encouraging Critical Thinking in Online Threaded Discussions, http://www.thejeo.com/Archives/Volume6Number1/Arendpaper.pdf
I just read the article and I found the Implications section, if you want to read just one part of it, is directed at using threaded discussions to encourage critical thinking in students, but there are good suggestions in there for moderators of such discussions.
Robert Squires is a recent Webcast Academy graduate who has started his own regular EdTech Talk program called “Instructional Design Live”. This week, he and Mary Engstrom, both instructional designers at the University of Montana, will be discussing a proposal for a tiered approach to improving effectiveness in online teaching among faculty using the aforementioned paper as a basis for discussion.
