The next presentation in the fall series of free online CIDER sessions features a presentation and discussion with Dr. Tannis Morgan.
Title: Negotiating Teaching Presence: Implications for online teaching, course design, and the Community of Inquiry Framework
As currently conceived the community of inquiry framework provides a way of describing teaching presence in online discussion forums but is less useful in enhancing our understanding of the considerable negotiation that instructors engage in while facilitating a course. Using sociocultural theory as a framework, this presentation will discuss evidence from a multiple case study research in international online teaching contexts. The discussion will include the variation in how different instructors perceive the same interaction spaces, the disconnect between what instructors did and what they intended to do, and the importance of adopting different theoretical and methodological approaches to understanding teaching presence.
