Digital Community in a Time of "Quarantine"
Let's use this space for conversations about effective pedagogic methods during a period of potential H1N1-related student quarantines. How in particular can on-line learning environments and new media be deployed to enhance and deepen, rather than limit, our sense of academic community during a potential period of crisis?
Possible topics to discuss:
How different are the educational challenges posed by medical short term quarantines from regular distance-learning classes? (For instance, for students who will be back in the classroom environment in a week or two, how important is it that they still be able to engage in classroom style--audio or video--conversation with their peers during classroom hours?)
How might we best defuse or dispel the 'stigmatized' dimensions of quarantine, to communicate to quarantined students (and/or faculty) that they remain valued and active parts of our learning community?
How to best balance the imperatives for synchronous and asynchronous communication among members of a class?
How might we best integrate twitter and short texting into class sessions and out of class time interactions among course members?
Should we be regularly videoing and archiving lectures and class discussion? Are degrees of intimacy and trust at all imperiled when seminar style discussion is digitally archived?
