Today's task is to reflect on what I have learned from the Comment Challenge and apply into my teaching.
The skills of facilitation
From a teaching point of view, I think the main thing that has been re-enforced to me is how to facilitate conversation ie
- include lurkers in discussion;
- honor what everyone has to say;
- ignore the troublemakers;
- have boundaries and
- have fun.
Do you think it's as easy as I have made out or do you think that face-to-face teaching and communication is a very different kettle of fish to online teaching/communication?
