Engaging Professional Learning in Online Environments
Bell, Amani; Morris, Gayle
Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, v25 n5 p700-713 2009
Much of what is regarded as effective professional learning is that which is situated, incorporates a social dimension and enables practitioners to converge in and around authentic practice. This article describes an inter-university online learning resource for tutors which is underpinned by a practice based approach to professional learning. The emphasis is on seeing authentic, discipline specific practice via a large bank of multimedia clips of experienced tutors and reflection on that action through the incorporation of reflective triggers. Evaluation suggests a fruitful way forward for supporting learning at work. (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.)
