  • Barry Spencer Walking the Frameworks
  • Slide 17
  • Barry Spencer Having established a working environment, I require a framework that will foster the appropriate blend and balance of independent thinking and collaborative learning. I am impressed by a proposal from Anderson, Garrison and Archer for establishing what they term A Community of Enquiry: Social, Cognitive and Teaching Presence. Transformation Case Study Finding A Framework
  • Slide 18
  • Barry Spencer Respect Social discourse Encourage reflection Diversity of choice Accommodate perspective Explore assumptions Critical thinking Social presence: the ability of participants in a community of enquiry to project socially and emotionally, as real people (i.e. their full personality), through the medium of communication being used. Garrison, Anderson and Archer 2000 (the internet and higher education) Transformation Case Study Community Of Enquiry
  • Slide 19
  • Barry Spencer Construction Confirm meaning Creative thinking Convergent thinking Facilitate analysis Confirm understanding Sustained discourse Reflection Cognitive presence: The extent to which learners are able to construct meaning through sustained reflection and discourse in a critical community of enquiry. Garrison, Anderson and Archer 2001(American Journal of Distance Education) Transformation Case Study Community Of Enquiry
  • Slide 20
  • Barry Spencer Teaching Presence: The design facilitation and direction of cognitive and social processes for the purpose of realising personally meaningful and educationally worthwhile learning outcomes. Anderson 2001 (The hidden curriculum of distance learning) Focus discussion Pose stimulating questions Precipitate reflection Discussion moderation Facilitate awareness Scaffolding Design and organisation Draw in participants Transformation Case Study Community Of Enquiry

  • Barry Spencer By presenting the students with authentic but loosely defined scenario, they are encouraged to become involved in their learning as problem solvers; a mechanism in promoting the acquisition of knowledge, and competence. Transformation Case Study Problem Based Learning
  • Slide 24
  • Barry Spencer Manage the charging of vehicles and capacity of four car parks. Charges for passengers and vehicles boarding a cross channel ferry. Calculate area and volumes of simple geometrical shapes. Each solution must feature collaboration in the stages of design, coding and testing. Transformation Case Study The Assignment
