SITE 2017 – New Zealand Teacher Educators’ Knowledge Of And Attitudes Towards Online And Blended Learning

The thirty-first session that I am blogging here at SITE 2017 related to K-12 Online and Blended Learning is:

New Zealand teacher educators’ knowledge of and attitudes towards online and blended learning

Thursday, March 9 11:30-11:50 AM

No presider for this session.

Online learning is an increasing feature of New Zealand secondary schools, yet it is largely ignored within current initial teacher education programmes. This research reports on the results of interviews with 11 initial teacher educators from two programmes with the aim of understanding why this is the case. It focuses on their knowledge of what online and blended learning is and what is currently occurring, as well as their attitudes towards these forms of learning. Key themes identified within the interviews will be reported, and their implications for both teacher education and online teaching and learning in New Zealand schools are discussed.

Note that I am in a different session right now (as SITE has a habit this week of double booking several items).  So if there is anyone in the room that would like to share their notes, please post them in the comments below.
