​"Covid-19 and Connectivism: Ontario College Communications and Language Instruction Faculty’s Perspectives on Remote Teaching" - Janna Holmes - Algonquin College

 

You are invited to participate in a study exploring faculty perspectives on remote teaching during the Covid-19 pandemic, titled Covid-19 and Connectivism: Ontario College Communications and Language Instruction Faculty’s Perspectives on Remote Teaching. The aim of this research is to explore issues, concerns and best practices from a faculty perspective and interpret these perspectives through a connectivist framework.

Connectivism is a learning theory that specifically addresses learning in an online environment. As the Covid-19 pandemic has demanded more teaching and learning to occur in an online space, connectivism becomes a learning framework in need of more attention. This study will explore faculty perspectives on methods of engagement and tools that are meaningful to a connectivist understanding of teaching and learning.
