A Case for Including Online Pedagogy as Subject Matter in ICT and Pedagogy Methods Units
Williams, Michelle; Sutton, Paul
Australian Educational Computing, v27 n3 p133-142 2013
The Teaching Teachers to the Future project provided an opportunity to try a new idea within the ICT and Pedagogy methods subject of the Bachelor of Education program. We believed that deliberately helping pre-service teachers transition from being an online learners to online teachers, coaches and facilitators would assist these new teachers to interpret Australian curriculum in a digital age connected context. This Paper contains some rationales for including online pedagogy in a methods course and illustrates how this part of the subject was re-designed. The paper included impressions from a lecturer about the impact of this decision on student learning and shares some student views about what they had learned enabling the authors to conclude that this approach needs to be continued to be developed in the next implementation of the subject.
