Submission Date: December 24, 2019

Introduction

In this digital age, faculty, teachers and teacher educators are increasingly expected to adopt and adapt pedagogical perspectives to support student learning in instructional environments featuring online or blended learning. This is important given the increasing growth in many forms of online and blended learning in higher education, teacher education and K-12 education (Seaman, Allen & Seaman, 2018; Barbour & Unger Harrison, 2016; Educause, 2019). The pedagogical perspectives required for online and blended teaching often require new skills. One highly adopted element of online and blended learning involves the use of online learning discussions. We are focusing on discussion-based learning because research suggests it offers a rich pedagogical context for creating learning opportunities as well as a great deal of flexibility for a wide variety of learning and learner contexts. Conceptually, a value of discussion-based environments lies in the possibilities they afford for interaction. Learner interaction has long been considered one of the most critical components of distance education courses (Kang & Im, 2013; Moore, 1989; Woo & Reeves, 2007). By exchanging ideas and information with their peers and instructor(s), students can construct new knowledge and develop deeper understandings of key concepts. As post-secondary and, increasingly, K-12 institutions cope with the rapid growth of online learning, and an increase in the cultural diversity of learners, it is critical to understand, at a detailed level, the relationship between online interaction and learning, and how educationally effective interactions might be nurtured, in an inclusive way, by instructors. As educational technologies proliferate, new tools that support interaction like video, audio, and real-time interaction will continue to emerge, calling for understandings of their effects and both commonalities and differences in discussion-based learning. The overall goal of this book is to give a comprehensive picture of the current landscape of online discussion-based learning across different educational settings.

Objective

In this edited volume of cases, we seek to identify promising designs, pedagogical and assessment strategies, conceptual models and theoretical frameworks that support discussion-based learning in online and blended environments. In particular, we invite contributions including, but not limited to the following issues.
• Different methodological and empirical considerations and including issues like assessment and data tracking.
• A variety of theoretical and conceptual frameworks including, but not limited to, the learning sciences, Community of Inquiry (COI), Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL), Computer Mediated Communication (CMC), Critical Theory and others.
• Different geographical regions or cultural contexts and settings and how these contexts impact online pedagogy and learning
• Different areas of instruction – pre-service, in-service, and continuing professional development as well as graduate and undergraduate
• Different types of educational experiences – online, blended, virtual, cyber, e-learning, hybrid, flipped learning experiences
• Different settings or content areas (such as liberal arts including language arts, social studies and STEM/STEAM education (mathematics, engineering, science, technology) and grade levels (elementary, secondary, higher education; teacher education).
• Illustrations of supporting online learning discussions through the use of artificial intelligence applications.

Target Audience

Books such as this one are especially important for compiling high-quality, up-to-date, scholarly cases that can support and enhance the effective design of online courses incorporating current and emerging digital tools to meet the evolving needs of diverse learners in a variety of sectors. The cases will be valuable for post-secondary faculty, K-12 and teacher educators as well as educational designers in educational and business settings, in providing a clearer vision of effective ways to teach online in the 21st century. Thus, this book is intended for:
? Teacher educators
? Post-secondary faculty and instructors
? Educational designers and developers
o Pre-service
o In-service (in educational or business settings)
o Professional development
? Instructional technology faculty
? Distance learning instructional designers and faculty

Recommended Topics

Recommended Topics include but are not limited to the following
1. The design of online discussion environments. While these have been popular since the early 2000s, potential limitations have been identified, such as Hewitt’s (2005) argument that the design of linear threaded discourse means that people tend to focus on the newest entries rather than deepening and extending existing threads. Some researchers have used graphical user interfaces. Others are building discussions into learning with multipurpose tools such as Seesaw or Sesame. How is current research and design dealing with the issue of deepening discussion?
2. Pedagogical strategies for encouraging deep learning. Monitoring and guiding online discussion is more potentially time consuming for instructors because of the large volume of generated material. How are instructors managing that issue currently and do those strategies differ across various education sectors?
3. Issues of assessment: On the one hand discussion environments offer a rich landscape for innovative assessment of many kinds: self, peer and instructor, and assessment for, of, and as learning. However, online discussions also can proliferate and so need pedagogical strategies to organize and make use of this online material in productive ways. Automated online tracking tools can potentially provide increasingly varied, and valuable, views of online learning practices for both individuals and groups. They can also support innovative teaching practices. What kinds of tools are being developed, or are needed, and how are they useful in these various contexts?
4. What are the different theoretical frameworks currently being used in online learning discussion environment research. They include social constructivism, and more recently, new literacies and social practices. What might these different frameworks offer in helping us understand the online learning context more deeply?
5. There are several conceptual models currently in the field which focus on different aspects of the teaching and learning process, including models such as Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC); Computer-supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL); Community of Inquiry (COI) for example. What does current research tell us about the usefulness of these models? Are there additional promising conceptual models? If so, what added value do they provide to our understanding of online interaction in learning and teaching?

Call for Chapter Proposals: Disruptive and Emerging Technologies

Deadline: May 31, 2019

New technological developments are rapidly altering the business and social landscape, as we know it. We now control our homes from the touch of a button, ask chatbots for movie or restaurant recommendations, ride in autonomous cars, and have wearable devices, which allow us the ability to monitor our health remotely. Furthermore, mobile technology, social media, and cloud computing bring people together from all over the world, allowing equal access, and contribute to a global marketplace. In order to stay competitive, institutions of education must provide an emphasis on the wide-range of skills and experiences needed to contribute to a 21st century workforce. As new technologies emerge and even disrupt, there will be a demand for new forms of education and deeper learning.

Currently, we are in the process of editing a forthcoming publication entitled Disruptive and Emerging Technology Trends Across Education and the Workplace. The book will focus on the latest classroom and organizational research including the benefits and challenges of adopting such disruptive technologies and it will be published by IGI Global, an international publisher of progressive academic research.

Introduction

The learning environment as we know it has changed considerably. Gone are the days when the only learning option was a face-to-face classroom experience where the teacher came in and delivered a lesson or lecture on the topic of the day. Now, many learning options are possible in education, from traditional to blended/hybrid to fully online. To teach in these environments, educators have adopted a variety of pedagogical strategies and innovative technologies to enable learning. Of the three delivery formats, the blended mode, which involves the fusion of online and traditional face-to-face instruction and learning activities, is often said to have the most potential to provide the best learning environment. Many institutions are opting for the blended approach because of the belief that it offers “the best of both worlds”. As blended learning continues to evolve and expand, it is important that information regarding what the best educators do and what constitutes the most ideal combination of online and traditional pedagogical strategies in blended education and at all levels needs to be illuminated and shared as blended instruction does not come in a single formula.

Objective

The aim of this book is to provide an opportunity for educators to learn pedagogical strategies and technologies that have been successfully applied in blended instruction. In addition, the student outcomes from the use of these techniques will be presented. This book will be organized into various sections, each chapter authored by best practices educators in K-20 classrooms. The chapters in this book will highlight the strategies used and successes with teaching and learning that have occurred with the use of these techniques in blended education.

Target Audience

This book is intended for educators who teach or plan to teach in blended learning environments. The goal is to provide instructors with evidence-based strategies for teaching blended classes at all levels of education. To date, such information which is not readily available is necessary to help instructors and students succeed in this learning environment. In addition to the goal stated above, the content of this publication will provide a body of knowledge that will lead to the further development of the studies that focus on the area of blended education.

Recommended Topics

  • Best practices in blended education
  • Innovative strategies in blended education
  • Pedagogical strategies used in blended instruction in elementary, secondary, and/or tertiary education
  • Innovative technologies applied in blended instruction in elementary, secondary, and/or tertiary education
  • Student outcomes with the use of best practices in blended instruction
  • Assessing Blended learning

Submission Procedure

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before January 25, 2019, a chapter proposal of 1,000 to 2,000 words clearly explaining the mission and concerns of his or her proposed chapter.

  • Target Book Release: July 2020

Purpose

This volume will provide educators with an understanding of the needs of online learners and strategies for supporting those needs. Enrollment trends illustrate an increase in enrollment of students in online education – with an increase from 4.5 million to 5.2 million undergraduates from 2012 to 2016 and a larger increase in graduate students of 3.2 million in 2012 to 5.8 million in 2016. In fact, 30% of students in the United States take at least one course online (Allen & Seaman). There’s no doubt that the future of higher education will evolve and even likely rely upon online learning as a method for increasing access to higher education. As high as 20% of students drop out (Nistor & Neubauer, 2010; Crawley & Fetzner, 2013) before completing their degree. All students, including online students do better academically when they feel valued, welcome, and supported (Ludwig-Hardman & Dunlap, 2003), thus it’s important to understand and unpack best practices in supporting online students.

Volume Topics

Although not a comprehensive list, the following topic areas are provided as a starting point for potential chapter authors to see how they might contribute to the volume.

Section One
The first section of this volume (principles and framework) will explore some foundational elements of supporting online learners by first uncovering the growing trends in online education, examining the needs of online students broadly and among sub groups (e.g. undergraduate and graduate students and students within various disciplines), discussing some basic commitments for supporting the needs of online learners, and strategies for creating a comprehensive support system inclusive of online learners.

Section Two
The second section of the volume (best practices) will be strategy/best practice-based allowing for the opportunity to focus on specific aspects of supporting online students such as: mental health counseling, disability accommodations, engagement in co-curricular activities/involvement opportunities, career development support, alumni engagement, academic skills development (e.g. tutoring and writing support) student conduct processing, and assistance with health services. The best practice section of the book will comprise a series of vignettes and case studies where authors share their best practices or research and the outcomes associated with those practices.

CIDER Sessions: Call for presenters

CIDER Sessions: Call for presenters

As we look ahead to our 2018-19 season of CIDER Sessions, we invite researchers working in distance, distributed, online, or blended education to present in our ongoing monthly seminar series.

The Canadian Initiative for Distance Education Research (CIDER) is a research initiative of the International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning (IRRODL) and the Centre for Distance Education (CDE), Canada’s largest graduate and professional distance education programming provider, at Athabasca University, Canada’s Open University.

The CIDER Sessions are an online, open and free seminar series where researchers or research groups can present their work to a broad audience of fellow researchers, practitioners, and students from across Canada and around the world. Sessions are typically held on the first Wednesday of each month from 11am-noon Mountain time, though some exceptions may be possible to accommodate the presenter’s time zone. Presented through Adobe Connect, they are one hour in length, including questions from the audience, and are recorded, archived, and distributed through the CIDER site, at:
http://cider.athabascau.ca

A small number of spots may be available for students nearing completion of their dissertation or thesis. International presenters are welcome; all presentations are held in English.

If you have recent research for our CIDER audience and would like to present in this season’s series, please contact Dan Wilton at dwilton@athabascau.ca with a brief description of your research topic and approximate date when it will be available for presentation.
