Pushing beyond the comfort zone: Bridging the gap between technology and pedagogy
Maor, D. (2004) Pushing beyond the comfort zone: Bridging the gap between technology and pedagogy. In: ASCILITE 2004 Conference, 5 - 8 December 2004, Perth, W.A. pp. 572-576.
The use of online pedagogy within universities is increasing. However, this expansion is not accompanied by an associated increase in investment in lecturers' pedagogy to assist them in the transition. At present, lecturers lack the tools to describe or illustrate the meaning they try to make of this transition between online pedagogy and technology. This paper describes the changing relationship between pedagogy and technology that a group of academic staff demonstrated in a one year Action Research project. Diagrams, produced by the lecturers, demonstrated a tension between the two continua of pedagogy and technology. This way of representing their views is presented as a potential tool for assisting lecturers to construct meaning as they continue to adopt technology in their online teaching, while also providing a benchmark for their online pedagogy in order to ensure quality teaching in higher education.
