Instructional Strategies

Hello!

It has been awhile, I am back to write about my current PIDP course called 3250: Instructional Strategies. In this course we will be delving into the different ways to engage and motivate students to participate and learn. There is a significant portion of 3250 that is self directed learning and sharing ideas through an online forum. Here are a few of the interesting ideas and links that have been presented thus far:

– The new concept of heutagogy, which I interpret as taking andragogy a step further as the ultimate self directed learning: http://usergeneratededucation.wordpress.com/2013/05/13/education-3-0-and-the-pedagogy-andragogy-heutagogy-of-mobile-learning/1/
