Making the Transition: Helping Teachers to Teach Online by Rena M Palloff( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Teaching in the cyberspace classroom requires moving beyond old models of pedagogy into new practices that are more facilitative. It involves much more than simply taking old models of pedagogy and transferring them to a different medium. Unlike the face-to-face classroom, in online distance education, attention needs to be paid to the development of a sense of community within the group of participants in order for the learning process to be successful. The transition to the cyberspace classroom can be successfully achieved if attention is paid to several key areas. These include: ensuring access to and familiarity with the technology in use; establishing guidelines and procedures which are relatively loose and free-flowing, and generated with significant input from participants; striving to achieve maximum participation and "buy-in" from the participants; promoting collaborative learning; and creating a double or triple loop in the learning process to enable participants to reflect on their learning process. All of these practices significantly contribute to the development of an online learning community, a powerful tool for enhancing the learning experience. Each of these is reviewed in detail in the paper. (Aef)
