Question Types

Each kind of question serves a different pedagogical purpose. Checking for Conceptual UnderstandingQuestions that check for conceptual understanding are a crucial way for instructors to tailor their teaching to what students already know. A question like this one might be useful before the beginning of a unit on evolutionary genetics, to check how many students are already familiar with the concept. Questions checking for conceptual understanding are also useful in the middle or end of a unit, to get feedback on how many of the students actually understand the new concept being taught. Addressing MisconceptionsQuestions that address misconceptions allow instructors to zero in on difficult concepts and common misunderstandings. Beginning of a unit or a class to see how much the students already know about the topic to be covered.

Instructors can use such a question to lead into small- or large-group discussions. 9781 036609CHAP6. Pedagogical appraches for using technology literature review january 11 FINAL. 20 – Diigo. Diigo is a social bookmarking, research and knowledge sharing tool.

Critical thinking in the Online Classroom

I’ve been writing about online presence in this series and though complex, it is best understood by the Community of Inquiry (CoI) model, a framework of three dimensions that work together to create what I call a complete learning experience (though the creators of the model call it an ‘educational experience’ where all three coincide (Garrison et al., 2000). In part one, I reviewed instructor presence and part two, social presence.

Though this third dimension is officially labeled ‘cognitive presence‘ I have made reference to critical thinking, as this is what should be happening in the cognitive presence domain, which I’ll elaborate on further in the post. What is Cognitive Presence? I thought social presence was the most abstract and elusive, but I was wrong, it’s this dimension, Cognitive Presence that is the hardest to get my head around and put on paper.

In this post I’ll share how to give meaningful and constructive feedback to students on assignments, presentations, and other works by using voice recorded files.

Research suggests that students want specific and detailed feedback from their instructors (Balaji & Chakrabarti, 2010 ). Who wouldn’t? It is disappointing to students to receive few or no comments from their instructor after investing hours researching and writing a paper. Even more disconcerting to some students, is receiving a below par grade with little explanation or constructive feedback—in online classes even more so given the lack of personal contact. Which is why in online classes voice feedback is much appreciated by students; most students welcome this type of response. Results of ‘Explanatory Feedback’ Study at Duke University I won’t elaborate here about the value of feedback, as I delved into this topic in my last post. 1) Voice Recorder App on Smart Phone.
