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?”
