The Community of Inquiry (CoI) theoretical framework has made a tremendous impact on online and distance education and is widely regarded as one of the most effective models for creating engaging, satisfying and high-quality learning experiences.
By promoting the development of communities that prioritize higher-order learning, CoI provides valuable guidance for faculty, instructors and instructional designers seeking to create effective online and blended learning environments.
In this webinar, you'll have the opportunity to learn from two researchers in the field: Dr. Marti Cleveland-Innes, Professor of Education at Athabasca University, and Jenine Hawryluk, a doctoral student in distance education at Athabasca University. Together, they explore how to establish meaningful learning through activity in all four components of the CoI framework: cognitive, social, teaching and emotional presence.
By adopting a community-based, learning-focused approach to online course design, faculty and instructors can create learner-centered environments that offer dedicated support and motivation. Through the design, delivery and assessment of online learning using the CoI framework, you'll gain valuable insights into how the CoI framework can help you create dynamic, engaging and effective online and blended learning environments.
This webinar will help you to:
- Learn the basics of the Community of Inquiry (CoI) theoretical framework for both online and blended learning.
- Review practical strategies that offer instructional activities of four components of the framework.
- Understand where to find research and practice information about the CoI framework to support your own online and blended course design.
- Learn about assessment processes that measure learning outcomes and align with the CoI framework.
