53 interesting ways to support online learning (working title)
Outline: Research has shown that although learners in higher education may be familiar with using technology in their social lives, they do not always use effective strategies in studying online. Drawing on research into student experiences, this book provides 53 practical ideas for teachers and lecturers who are supporting students on blended or fully online courses.
Each of the 53 ideas provides a learning activity to help students develop their study skills and habits, so that they can learn confidently and effectively in the digital age. The book is designed to dip into for ideas that dovetail with your own practice.
The topics covered are wide-ranging. They include: time management skills; self-regulated learning; personalizing the online learning environment; collaborative learning; presenting work online; online assessment; experimenting with playful learning; and reflection and blogging.
