The SECTIONS model for choosing media

The second of four webinars on my open, online textbook, Teaching in a Digital Age, was ‘broadcast’ last Tuesday (3 November 2015) by Contact North. In this webinar, I discussed the issues covered in Chapters 6 and 7 on Understanding Technology in Education and Pedagogical Differences between Media‘.

The webinar was recorded and is now available for downloading from here.

As well as a brief summary of the main topics, the webinar also provides my personal views on these topics, as well as answers to a range of challenging questions from the 45 participants, including participants from Argentina, Australia, Nigeria, South Africa, the U.K. and the USA. If you have been reading these two chapters, the webinar is a very useful extra resource.

The recording of the first webinar in the series, Teaching with Technology – How to Use the Best Practice Models and Options’, mainly discusses the main issues raised in the first five chapters in the book, in particular different teaching methods for teaching in a digital age. That webinar is also available for downloading from here.

The third webinar in the series, Making the Choice – How to Choose between Online, Blended or Campus-Based Delivery for Effective Learning, covering chapters 9 and 10 of the book, will be on Monday, November 23, 2015 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time, North America (same time as Toronto/New York).

The final webinar will be on December 3, discussing how to ensure quality in teaching in a digital age. After that I will be resolving the crises in the Middle East and Afghanistan, which are simpler in camparison.
