Online learning: ‘Abomination’ or 21st Century Learning Tool?

March 15, 2018

From online courses in universities, to FOIP or Scouts Canada training, online learning is becoming more common in learning environments throughout our culture. How do distance and online learning fit into our tool kit as educators?

Using her experience as a faculty member, distance educator, and SME/Curriculum Developer, during this presentation Lisa Mutch will use her own course (Anthropology 101 - Introduction to Anthropology) to illustrate some of the challenges and benefits of online teaching and learning.

Having over ten years of experience with distance learning, and twenty years in face-to-face teaching in traditional classrooms, Lisa finds it interesting to compare and contrast these two modes of teaching and learning. She will discuss what these modes have in common and where they significantly differ, some administrative peculiarities of online courses, some best practices, and some of the useful crossover that has occurred in her classes as a result of teaching in both modes.

Presented by:

Lisa Mutch, MacEwan University
