Leaders: Mark Nicholls, eLearning Specialist, Laidlaw College, Auckland, NZ, and Steve Ehrmann, TLT Group Vice-President.

This webinar will consider various assumptions that have been made about eLearning practice in higher education, and consider them based on research evidence and a theoretical perspective grounded in formal education. It challenges a number of assumptions beneath what seems to be an established paradigm of thought in the hope of encouraging evidence-based practice.

1.       Setting the scene: the 'broken middle'

2.       Understanding e-learning: paradigm shift vs extension

3.       E-learning and faculty: absorption vs empowerment

4.       Online discussion: community vs cooperation

5.       The Net Gen: promise vs problem

6.       Web 2.0: essential vs irrelevant

7.       Conclusion: enthusiasm vs evidence
