Examining the Pedagogy of Online Education and Technology

Todd Shoepe, Health and Human Sciences, Faculty Associate 2012 - 2013

Online and technology mediated education are likely to become ever more important in higher education. What aspects of teaching and learning do online tools and technology lend themselves to? What are their advantages? What are the challenges? How different are online and technology-mediated instruction from traditional pedagogy? What kind of online instruction and technology can support the educational mission of LMU and its Strategic Plan?
We will facilitate the dialogue about the opportunities and state of online instruction through discussions and presentations. Programming will also focus on the role of technological pedagogy in different kinds of classrooms and learning contexts. Through panels, workshops, and mentorship, we plan to address the efficacy and concerns of online instruction and discuss currently available online tools and methods. We will supplement the programming through reviews of available tools and literature on online education and technology.




Flipping the Classroom
Class flipping "means that the events that have traditionally taken place inside the classroom now take place outside the classroom" (Lage et al.,2000). Also known as inverting the classroom, this technique promotes a move from a professor-centric lecture format to a student-centric working classroom. Students are expected to view, listen to, or read lecture material through pre-recorded video/audio segments or lecture notes in order to appear in class prepared for planned activities which might include problem solving, group work, project development, discussion, creative works, or homework. In contrast to traditional formats, flipping allows students more time in the presence of the professor during the times that they are most engaged in the application of the material.
