New CIDER session/time

Dr. Terry Anderson, Professor and Canada Research Chair in Distance Education, has kindly agreed to present his thoughts on “Three Generations of Distance Education Pedagogy.” Please note that Dr. Anderson’s presentation will take place the second Wednesday of April, a week later than our usually scheduled sessions.

In this presentation, Dr. Anderson defines three pedagogical models that have defined distance education programming – behavioural/cognitive, constructionist and connectivist. He talks about the challenges and opportunity afforded by each model, with a focus on the emergent development of connectivism.
