The Canadian Network for Innovation in Education is offering an online audio-conference workshop on April 14 in the CIDER series.
From their announcement
We are very pleased to announce that Dr. Terry Anderson, Professor and Canada Research Chair in Distance Education, has kindly agreed to present on:
Three Generations of Distance Education Pedagogy. In this presentation Dr. Anderson defines three pedagogical models that have defined distance education programming – behavioural/cognitive, constructionist and connectivist. He talks about the challenges and opportunity afforded by each model, with a focus on the emergent development of connectivism.
