Single Slide 03: What About Blended Learning?

April 4th, 2018

I’m meeting monthly with our instructional design team to have constructive dialogue around concepts involved in our work. I’m doing this by sharing a single slide, elaborating on it verbally, and then inviting conversation. Ideally, all within 10 minutes! I’m recording the presentation portion of these sessions and archiving here the audio and the slide from each. For many, if not all, of these “single slides” a backdrop question is: “What should we hold on to (from our successful past), and what should we let go of in order to move forward productively?”

For this third “single slide” session, I shared thoughts on the affordances of blended learning with an eye toward new implementations and innovations of blended learning at UCF.

Keynote Address at TOPkit Workshop 2018

March 15th, 2018

Following is a description of and (primitive) audio recording from the closing keynote address “Two Stories and a Conversation (aka Apples & Grasshoppers)” at the 2018 Teaching Online Preparation Toolkit (TOPkit) Workshop.

The TOPkit Workshop is focused on supporting the effective Florida implementation of the open-licensed faculty development resources of http://topkit.org. The two-day 2018 TOPkit Workshop included an opening keynote address from Open SUNY’s Alexandra Pickett and a Day 01 closing keynote from UCF’s Dr. Thomas B. Cavanagh. The final, closing keynote from Kelvin Thompson was designed to provide a framework for participants to reflect upon ideas from the workshop and to identify concrete opportunities to apply these ideas in their institutional contexts. This was achieved by two framing stories and facilitating small group and whole group conversations with an explicit emphasis on application as a culminating activity. (Note: The recording below is edited to remove the discussion elements for a more listenable experience.)

Single Slide 02: A Foundation of Models at UCF

February 7th, 2018

I’m meeting monthly with our instructional design team to have constructive dialogue around concepts involved in our work. I’m doing this by sharing a single slide, elaborating on it verbally, and then inviting conversation. Ideally, all within 10 minutes! I’m recording the presentation portion of these sessions and archiving here the audio and the slide from each. For many, if not all, of these “single slides” a backdrop question is: “What should we hold on to (from our successful past), and what should we let go of in order to move forward productively?”

For this second “single slide” session, I shared Dr. Joel Hartman’s construct of “models of practice” and his 2002 articulation of the six models of practice underlying online education at UCF at that time with an eye toward considering which models need re-articulation, modification, or forking.

Single Slide 01: 22 Year Overview of Online Learning at UCF

January 10th, 2018

I’m meeting monthly with our instructional design team to have constructive dialogue around concepts involved in our work. I’m doing this by sharing a single slide, elaborating on it verbally, and then inviting conversation. Ideally, all within 10 minutes! I’m recording the presentation portion of these sessions and archiving here the audio and the slide from each.

For this first “single slide” session, I shared an overview of the 22 year history of online learning at UCF through the lenses of major themes, views of “success,” and Rogers’ Diffusion of Innovations. For many, if not all, of these “single slides” a backdrop question is: “What should we hold on to (from our successful past), and what should we let go of in order to move forward productively?”
