4.0 out of 5 stars A HE persective of e-learning pedagogy, 4 July 2008

This review is from: Rethinking Pedagogy for a Digital Age: Designing and Delivering E-Learning (Paperback)
As a university lecturer involved in developing online courses I understand the arguments about focusing on the learning and not in the content, which is the current view-point. We should focus on design for learning and not design of materials.

The main focus of the book is learning design. There are some excellent chapters discussing learning theory and the background to learning and there are some excellent examples in the second part of the book when they look at applications. The final chapter in particular is an excellent summary.

In between there are some chapters that simply forget that a design is useless if it is not practical to implement. In these chapters they over-theorise and forget that we are only going to go forward with an experiential understanding of how new technology will make an impact.

This review is from: Rethinking Pedagogy for a Digital Age: Designing and Delivering E-Learning (Paperback)
An impressive text-book for all thinking educationists. - However, like orange-squash perhaps it needs diluting at times.

Each chapter is well-written by experts in their individual fields, thus making this book an excellent textbook for HE studies.

My only slight complaint, as with many other texts on the subject, is that the focus is primarily on HE and leaves the translation of principles to all other sectors of education to the reader.

Perhaps chapters on how e-Pedagogy is changing Primary, Secondary, FE and Adult Education could be included in a second volume?

This review is from: Rethinking Pedagogy for a Digital Age: Designing and Delivering E-Learning (Paperback)
This book gave an excellent overview of many of the complex issues surrounding pedagogy in a digital age. It would be a useful book for anyone who is thinking about becoming a teacher or who is a teacher. It should be a set text for managers in education.
