Renowned guest Dr. Patsy Moskal joins hosts Tom and Kelvin to share key insights from 25 years of conducting research studies and impact evaluation on digital teaching and learning. Grounding our work in this robust body of literature is especially important as we seek to distinguish intentional online learning from ad hoc remote instruction.

Join hosts Kelvin and Tom for a consideration of the range of options for post-pandemic work being considered across higher education. As online education professionals, if we can’t figure out how to do this well, who can?

Hosts Tom and Kelvin discuss themes found in the recent CHLOE 6 report on how higher ed’s remote instruction pandemic response has impacted the landscape of online education. Listeners are encouraged to compare the presented themes with their own observations in order to better understand our field and prepare for the future.

Redesigning courses from one modality to another was a rushed necessity in the early days of remote instruction, and it might be an expectation of some administrators post-pandemic. Join hosts Tom and Kelvin as they unpack what listener Jerry Dougherty has termed “intermodal learning.”

Guest Shannon Riggs joins hosts Tom and Kelvin to discuss her book “Thrive Online” and a key principle that, when pursuing quality, regardless of online, blended, synchronous, or in-person course modality, “it really always comes back to design.”

Join hosts Kelvin and Tom for a consideration of the need across higher education to collaboratively wage a campaign of accuracy to repair the damage done to the reputation of online education during the remote instruction response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Student evaluation of instruction is often contentious. In this episode, guest Dr. Barbara Zorn joins hosts Tom and Kelvin to share findings from a data mining research study of end of term evaluations from 60,000 online courses. Research in this area guides our field in using these evaluations effectively.
