Good Practice with Online Learning
Traditionally, in a teacher-centered classroom, teachers control their environment because they have a monopoly on information. In an online learning environment, with instant access to vast resources of data and information, students are no longer totally dependent on teachers for knowledge.
Many instructional strategies available for use in the online learning environment, most have not been developed specifically for online instruction, but are currently used in traditional classrooms, and can be successfully adapted for facilitating online learning.
Keep learning collaborative, contextual, authentic and active. Use instructional strategies you use in the classroom:
- Learning Contracts
- Self-directed Learning
- Problem Based Learning
- Small Group Work
- Collaborative Learning
