Profile Information

about me
I have studied the pedagogy of distance learning and/or taught online for almost 20 years. I first learned about how to be effective online by working with an outback college in Western Australia and then wrote and taught the first online course offered at SUNY Plattsburgh. Since then I have expanded my research and knowledge by teaching at multiple types of colleges that offer online learning (public, private and for-profit). Several years ago I developed and taught a graduate education course "teaching and learning online" for K-12 teachers.

Blog #2: ABCs of Making Discussion Work

Posted on January 26, 2017 at 12:21pm 0 Comments

There are many approaches to developing inclusive discussion which motivates students to participate and share learning, but the one I have found to work best I learned from the University of Phoenix. It is called ABC Facilitation.

A = Acknowledge

B = Build

C = Conclude

So, what does this mean and how does it work?

“A“ means to acknowledge what the students has posted. In my discussions, I post a starter to the discussion to which students must respond by…

Blog 1: It’s the Little Things: Discussion Hint #1

Posted on January 4, 2017 at 7:20am 0 Comments

Our online students are in a very different situation from those in the traditional classroom.  In the traditional class room discussion the students sit in a chair and see and hear the facilitator.  In the online class room the student sits in a chair and sees a computer screen.  The online student often wonders if anyone is even reading what he or she posts and not feeling included can take away motivation to participate.

One thing I have learned in my 20 or so years of…
