Teaching an Interactive Television Course on Adulthood and Aging: Making It Happen
Donorfio, Laura K. M.; Healy, Catherine
Educational Gerontology, v34 n6 p531-549 Jun 2008
This article describes the design, development, and successful implementation of a hybrid distance education course on adulthood and aging. The focus is on the pedagogical and technological transitions made in converting a traditional course into an interactive television course (iTV). The course was taught a total of three times, first as a traditional one-site course and twice as an iTV course delivered to three sites. Details are provided on the development of a core team, design of a teaching platform, unexpected challenges and benefits, and implemented changes. Student feedback and lessons learned are also provided. (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.)
