The Radical Model--A Painless Way To Teach On-Line.
Romm, C.; Taylor, W.
The information technology/information systems (IT/IS) education sector needs to come up with creative ways of thinking about on-line education. In this paper, the major themes in the literature on on-line education to date are highlighted with a view to identifying issues that are either missing or under-emphasized. Next, the "radical model of on-line teaching" is presented. The paper concludes with a discussion of how the model addresses some of the issues that are missing or under-emphasised in the literature. Discussion includes the advantages and disadvantages of teaching on-line; the range of technologies for on-line teaching; the profound changes to the role of the lecturer as a result of on-line teaching; an under-emphasis on the soft knowledge/skills; a relevant underemphasis on the "Many to Many" mode of student/lecturer interaction; an under-emphasis on flexibility for the lecturer; and reasons for the need to be creative about on-line education.
