“The Walled Garden” a.k.a. The Learning Management System (LMS)?
Date: May 9, 2014 
Time: 2:00-3:00 pm ET
Presenters: Steve Gilbert, Bonnie Mullinix and others
free to all.  


Many questions circulate these days regarding learning management systems (LMS). A walled garden (LMS) restricts access. There is a tool shed within the garden, but is it limited?  What about tools outside the garden? Is there a gate? Who decides what can go in and out of the gate? Information? Tools? Let's talk together about these and other questions such as :
  1. CURRENT TRENDS, FEATURES OF LMS  What institutions are exploring, using, requiring, supporting in LMS options for their faculty - esp faculty who teach online.
  2. ALTERNATIVES, ENHANCEMENTS TO LMS What non-LMS options are important for faculty to consider using INSTEAD of or in ADDITION to their institution's provided LMS - especially faculty new to teaching fully or partly online.
  3. IMPLICIT AND EXPLICIT PEDAGOGIES OF LMS Every LMS reflects an underlying pedagogy - whether that pedagogy is intentional and explicit or accidental and implied.  How can an institution or an individual faculty member decide how well the LMS’s underlying pedagogy fits their needs and goals?  To what extent can or should a faculty member adapt his/her own pedagogy to the LMS?  In what ways can an LMS be adapted or augmented to fit the users’ preferred pedagogy?
