Abstract

Critical dialogue is an epistemological tool that uses conflict, reflection, and authenticity to help students address sensitive social issues. The embodied, action-based, and community aspects of critical dialogue make it particularly difficult to execute in online contexts. Previous attempts have focused on promoting critical dialogue in text-based discussion boards. In this paper, we describe critical dialogue and its features and discuss the constraints and affordances for using this type of approach online. In particular, we suggest incorporating synchronous and asynchronous video discussion may address some of the constraints. We provide an example of an online course designed for critical dialogue and discuss plans for future research.
