Teaching and Learning about Community Development Online: Insights and Lessons Learned
Kulig, Judith; Krupa, Eugene; Nowatzki, Nadine
Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, v33 n2 Spr 2007
This paper discusses the development, delivery, and evaluation of a successful graduate course in community development offered to students across Canada via the Internet. The review of literature points to common themes in distance education, community development and health promotion. The course, "Health Promotion: Community Development Approaches", is presented as a case example with descriptions of the curriculum, delivery methods, learning resources, activities and recommendations for future offerings of the course and for distance education in general. Although web-based distance education is challenging and requires instructors and learners to adapt, it can be an effective way to learn about concepts, and model the principles and ideology that are at the core of community development.
