What did you do in 1995? The longer and more fixed the schedule of courses, the less likely students are to complete a course. Given 1995 conditions, how might this have been addressed? Write short response in chat or raise hand and use mic.

The “new” academy? Environments . e-mail, WebCT, Blogs, IM, SMS, Wikis, discussion forums, gaming, shopping… Strategies . Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL), publishing, activism… Activities. Practice, inquiry, observation, debate, projects… Assessments . Digital papers, Power Point™ Presentations, ePortfolios, Communities of Practice…

The “new” learner? Are your students different than they were 10 years ago? Yes? No?

Where are your faculty? I know its there but…. I’m kind of interested in that thing I saw… Hmm, I may have to change what I am doing. I sure am spending a lot of time managing it. Is what I am doing really helping students? I bet I can adapt from what others are doing. Gee, my ideas may work better than what others have done! Check the number where most of your faculty reside.

Does your school give credit for courses taken online from other institutions and sources of instruction? * Institutions that arbitrarily refuse to accept credit for courses taken electronically from other sources have not made the transition to the current learning environment. That is not to say that every form of distance learning will or should be accepted. An institution's methods for ensuring quality control should focus on learning outcomes and how they relate to the academic requirements, not on the method of delivery.

What are tested strategies?

Course Design: Distributed Engagement This approach allows the learner to complete instructional sequences at his or her own pace, in various learning environments and with various supports. Usable for both campus and distributed environments, the intent is to allow students to progress through material in the way and speed that is most appropriate for the individual. Also known as the Emporium Model (NCAT).

Final thoughts Learning hasn’t change but the delivery of instruction has changed and will continue to change. Look for collaborators and first ‘responders’. Keep an eye on trends.
