Hi all! It would be great if everyone could share where you are today and what you're working on in the chat to get us started.
Ben Wilkoff
37:10
I’m in Aurora and I’m working on OER and VR today!
La Dawna Minnis
37:27
Ben, we need to talk more about AR/VR
La Dawna Minnis
37:52
I’m in Irvine and I’m working on project scope creep
Ben Wilkoff
38:16
Any time!
Susannah Simmons
38:20
Hello! I’m in Golden, CO at Colorado School of Mines. I’ve been working on a course called Engineering and Faciitating Online Learning that prepares faculty to teach online.
Ben Wilkoff

I see so many things happening in more social spaces than the ones that are built into an LMS.
Ben Wilkoff
40:04
Not just twitter, but text messaging and document sharing type things.
Ben Wilkoff
40:11
Just students sharing notes is a social act.
Susannah Simmons
41:13
Very true Ben! Learning to share information in a practical way is a powerful skill to hone.
Susannah Simmons
41:35
Digital Spaces are much more flexible.

Yes, I would like to learn more about mission critical.
Susannah Simmons
52:14
Writing as learning
Susannah Simmons
52:25
^ adding to Ben’s statement
La Dawna Minnis
52:28
Love it Susannah!
Joni Dunlap
53:03
Mission critical for me also means attending to what we know about the learning audience and how the brain works etc. and how best to design and share learning opportunities.
Joni Dunlap
53:49
For example I think inclusivity is a mission critical pedagogical frame.
Joni Dunlap
55:40
I hesitate to define as “theory” but growth mindset, community of inquiry, situational cognition.
Joni Dunlap
56:28
Brain research in general
Ben Wilkoff
56:46
The learning theory of Connectivism is probably the most compelling to me (for the last 15 or so years)
Susannah Simmons
58:16
Fantastic take-away, ask faculty, “How best do you learn?”
La Dawna Minnis
01:01:26
Ugh “content” is just exhausting sometimes
Joni Dunlap
01:02:16
A great opportunity for data collection from students?? What do students and alums say?
Joni Dunlap
01:03:38
I’ve asked people to think back to all of their years of being a student — and describe a “best learning experience” from each grade level. That would allow for more data points than only the program they have just graduated from.
Joni Dunlap
01:03:56
What is the essence? Essential?
Pedagome Connect
01:04:04
Yes! I remember things from 2nd grade and undergraduate.
Steven Weidner
01:04:44
I don't know just yet as I haven't been here long enough to find out about student surveys. I know people do them, but I don't know how willing those peopel are to reconsider the questions they're asking :/
Susannah Simmons
01:07:20
Is there a link that you can share about this model Joni?
Susannah Simmons
01:07:27
*share a link

Steven that brings us back to access and inclusivity—absolutely
Susannah Simmons
01:12:39
Lowest common denominator technology is a great thing to keep in mind Ben
Steven Weidner
01:12:50
Also, how much does central IT lock down things as to whether people can install apps/browser plugins/ whatever onto the machine they have access to?
La Dawna Minnis
01:13:45
Steven, that’s a huge frustration for me right now. I can’t even install an LTI to play around and test without formal campus approval and a full review of terms and conditions by our legal department
Susan Laws
01:14:03
There is scholarship on pedagogical uses of WeChat by students in China
La Dawna Minnis
01:14:06
So I install on my personal Canvas account to demonstrate capability
La Dawna Minnis
01:14:32
I’ve not heard of WeChat, need to explore more
Steven Weidner
01:15:15
It's a major app in China. I had instructors teaching Chinese online using it in their online classes.
Susan Laws
01:15:22
A lot of chat apps are banned in China, like WhatsApp, etc. WeChat is just their version of a messaging app
Susan Laws
01:16:19
It's also a digital wallet, for payments, etc. It has similar functionality as Instagram, ie. digital stories, etc. You can do everything with it almost lol
Susannah Simmons
01:18:06
“Keep a critical eye on the limitations of digital tools AND handle the tools roughly”
Ben Wilkoff
01:26:33
I’ve got to hop off. Thank you for an amazing time!
Susannah Simmons
01:26:39
Bye Ben!
La Dawna Minnis
01:27:11
Joni, I’m curious what you think are the most critical skills for an instructional designer?
Susannah Simmons
01:27:26
Good question
Pedagome Connect
01:29:44
Do you have an example from a recent project where you built in something digital that worked on a more critical level than you expected?
Pedagome Connect
01:33:30
Are there any digital tools or spaces you see used often that is not as critical or central to learning as we think or perceive?
Susannah Simmons
01:34:55
This has been such a great discussion Joni, Sophia, and La Dawna. Thank you again. I have to run, but I’ll see you online soon!
La Dawna Minnis
01:35:04
Thanks Susannah!
Pedagome Connect

Bye, everyone, have a great evening!
