@slamteacher @mcjsa @KrisGiere @Bali_Maha @edtechinsight #moocmooc Or do we need to cause some disruption and be empathetic to struggle?
My students demand rubricized and structured online learning modules. They want step by step walk-throughs of every task.
Is it more empathetic to build the learning space that gaurantees success or do we just provide support when students fall in the inevitable pits of non-linear learning?
