Rethinking teacher authority to counteract homophobic prejudice in the networked classroom: A model of teacher response and overview of classroom methods
ARTICLE

Abstract

The author argues for a reworked pedagogy in the networked computer classroom to counteract the emergence of prejudicial attitudes which marginalize people in online discussions. She delineates one model of teacher pedagogy in realtime discussion programs, and sets this model against a backdrop of democratic and totalitarian extremes in pedagogical approaches. The author encourages interventionist strategies within the context of “outside response,” such as centralizing discussion and giving preparatory lectures, to strengthen instructor influence in online discussion. Class interaction is examined in a writing-intensive English course the author has taught on rhetoric and theatre, and the experience of instructors teaching composition and literature at the University of Texas at Austin is cited. The article proposes that responsible instructor pedagogy in the networked classroom would hold instructors more accountable for confronting and limiting the dynamics which alienate class members in online discussion.
