Theme: Critical Digital Pedagogy (How to implement Critical Pedagogy in online learning environments?)

Questions to Ponder

  • What struck you from today's vidcast or readings? Any Aha's?
  • How do we develop and build caring communities in our online classes?
  • How do we implement pedagogies of care?
  • If online classes are a quintessentially human endeavor, then how do we build/address instructor-student, student-student, and student-self relationships within our online classes?
  • Where do we treat our online students as automatons instead of human beings? What kinds of critically pedagogical interventions can we employ to ameliorate this inhumane treatment?
