Jan 21 Recorded TEIS Webinar: Cross-cultural Dialogues in an Open Online Course

  • 1.  Jan 21 Recorded TEIS Webinar: Cross-cultural Dialogues in an Open Online Course

    The URL below is the recorded conversation undertaken on Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2020. Vanessa Paz Dennen and JiYae Bong from Florida State University describe their research on the dialogues and the engagement patterns of an international group of participants a MOOC that focused on social media use. Although their perspective is that of instructional designers and researchers, their insights may be of use to the TESOL audience interested in the online medium as a medium of instruction.  As with all ongoing research, the speakers demonstrate constant problematization at several levels including at the theoretical level (Hofstede's Cultural Dimensions theory) and in the appropropriateness and adequacy of the conceptual categorizations of "national," organizational and tool cultures.  Pedagogical implications are discussed with the caveat that there is much that remains unknown and to be explored.
