Leads: Rosina Chia and Elmer Poe
Summary: This session focuses on what is unique, exciting and problematic about globally networked learning environments. The workshop leaders will describe strategies specific to this course format that actually take advantage of the students’ distance from each other and which engage the students structurally and conceptually. The session will explore these possibilities and will include discussions of practical ways to effectively move beyond the surface issues in the online environment.
