Directing the learning process in an online format can challenge even the most experienced online instructor. Asynchronous formats, limited teacher-learner interaction, misalignment of expectations are only a few obstacles instructors navigate as they strive to direct learning in an online course.
This presentation will not provide all the answers to the online teaching challenges, but it will provide course design examples that apply choice architecture (Thaler & Sunstein, 2008) using Canvas tools. In this session you will learn how to effectively direct the learning process by improving learner decision making using:
- Pre-reading and Post-reading Learning Outcome Surveys
- Muddiest Point Group Discussions
- Exam Wrappers
Carefully constructed learning environments can nudge learners towards self-evaluation and reflection of one's own knowledge and effort resulting in higher levels of metacognition.
