Distance Education in transit? #EDENchat #EDENchatUS
|What will distance education look like in the future?|
What will be the future of distance education? Will it be subsumed into online learning, blended learning or e-learning, or will it survive as a separate discipline? What new skills and knowledge do distance educators require today in the contexts of unprecedented technology development? What does it take to be a distance educator, and how does this differ from conventional (or contiguous) educators? Can conventional pedagogy be adapted to distance education, or is a complete transformation of pedagogy required for learning at a distance to be successful? All these and other allied questions will be discussed when #EDENChat joins forces with the United States Distance Learning Association (USDLA) for a one hour special online Twitter chat on Wednesday 11th November, at 20.00 GMT (21.00 CET/15.00 ET) where we will also use the hashtag #EDENchatUS.
Please join us on Twitter to discuss the future of distance education. All previous #EDENchat transcripts can be found on the EDEN Website here.
