Digging In: Designs That Develop Intersubjectivity in Course Room Discourse
Hall, Barbara Miller
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (34th, 2011)
The purpose of this roundtable discussion was to explore factors that influence the design of the initial discussion prompts in course-based, online learning. The initial prompt is one of the first pieces of scaffolding necessary for the knowledge construction requisite in a constructivist learning environment. As a means of stimulating conversation among conference participants, intersubjectivity was asserted as a quality standard that is different from the current state of discourse in threaded discussions. Intersubjectivity is the representation of knowledge construction achieved through a synergistic progression from individual contributions to sequences of interdependent contributions. The highly interactive format of a roundtable was sought in order to elicit feedback on what participants had found to be effective or ineffective designs in facilitating deep interaction and knowledge construction with the expectation that the roundtable conversations about best (and not-so-best) practices could inspire additional points of consideration for disciplined inquiry in the future.
