Format: Paperback
A revolution is taking place in education. As more and more learning becomes web based, many educators are challenged to find ways to motivate, retain and promote the best models of learning for their students. In this excellent resource, Bonk and Zheng have compiled more than 100 activities that engage students in learning process. Spanning the range from low cost and low risk to high cost and high risk, these 100+ activities help students read, reflect, display and do (R2D2). Find a class ice-breaker or develop a case study for graduate students - this important treasury of information, activity and inspiration will help any educator improve the online experience for their students as well as themselves.

By tryzub on August 7, 2013
Format: Paperback
The author identifies and outlines strategies that reach different kinds of online learners. The basic classifications of auditory and verbal learner (visual-textual, reflective/observational learner, visual-display learner, and applied-doer learner cover most styles without stepping on the toes of different learning theory practitioners. The language used in the text is easy to understand, relate to and useful in discussing course design to management and staff that are not cognizant of learning theories.

I have engaged in online courses in three major universities and without exception they exclusively served the verbal or visual-textual learners, and did not incorporate any "new" ideas in course delivery; even something as simple as podcasting. The online courses mirrored face to face courses and were simply dumping grounds for reading material, poorly mediated discussions and dysfunctional group projects. The online courses I engaged in mock the idea of 'a community of learning'. Curtis Bonk's work is the light showing the way out of the narrow mindless dungeons of higher academe. The R2D2 theory is not instructional design, but it should be an important element.
