My seminar will incorporate some of the theories behind distance and e-learning, such as Transactional Theory and
Equivalency Theory ,
as well as how many of the Web 2.0 tools augment as well as provide a richer learning environment. More and more school districts are beginning to adopt an e-learning curriculum, but lack the appropriate trained teachers and professional development to ensure proper and appropriate learning of the students. My additional findings and hopefully a Coverit live broadcast of the lecture will be posted here.
During my research I had the unique opportunity to interview a certified expert in distance learning. The interview was conducted with Dr. Lisa Rodriguez who is the Director and Assistant Professor of the Center For Teaching and Learning at the University of La Verne.
