Katherine's late event

Title of the Event: Managing student participation and expectations
Date and Time: 12 days, from Saturday 15th til Wednesday 26th January 2011
Facilitator (with contact details): Katherine Gilliver-Brown. Skype: kgilliver_brown Email: Katherine
Presenter: Dr. E. Marcia Johnson
Venue: Katherine's Blog
Description: In the main page of the blog is a little voice pod recording of an interview I conducted with Dr. Johnson on issues associated with managing student expectations and participation in an online course. The recording is there to stimulate reflection on some of the nitty gritty of facilitating, especially when students are not as responsive as we wish they were. As with any blogging tool, there is a link to a comment box and participants in the course or anywhere in the world are welcome to participate with a comment, providing the opportunity for interaction on this issue.
Back Up Plan: If contributors for some reason are not able to post a comment I would invite them to skype me or email, and I will look into why they don't have access, and either address that problem or post on their behalf.
Recording Information: Being an asynchronous event a record of event will remain indefinitely on the blog site.
