About the Class
Teachers are people who are constantly exposed to new challenges. They are people who are skilled in delivering curricula, motivating learners, and successfully guiding them through the learning process. Above all, teachers are education practitioners with a wide range of experience. Therefore, they tend to explore new challenges from the point of view of explorers, confiding in empirical information. Many teachers think that theory should be left to theoreticians. We learn to think of theories as “removed from reality”, “useless for specific practical issues”, and “belonging to the realm of research”. At university, theories are often presented as ideas someone had and wrote a book about it.
What if theories were more than just ideas published in scholarly articles?
This interactive presentation explores two theories, instructional design theory and sociocultural theory, in the context of teaching and learning with the asynchronous learning management system Moodle. The two theories will be outlined, and the participants will explore how theories can contribute to the understanding of course designers, teachers, and learners of the teaching and learning process in Moodle courses.
