Abstract

How can online course shells be utilized for 100% face-to-face teacher education courses? Beyond electronically submitting assignments and providing hand-outs, the online course can accountably extend learning beyond class meetings. In a teacher preparation course where the teacher candidates group teach a unit, the online course shell was utilized for creation of thematic units. The e-learning discussion board was used for asynchronous facilitation of group work. Each group had their own discussion forum in which to work together to create group unit materials and post individual lesson plans. The instructor provided detailed comments to the students, both through discussion postings within each group’s discussion thread and through use of editing review tools in Microsoft Word. The response from the teacher candidates was positive. Many of the candidates commented specifically on the value of the high level of feedback in shaping their instructional planning and preparedness to teach
