Education Adjunct Gets Published

Jason Siko, adjunct faculty member for the College of Education, had an article published in the Journal of Catholic Education, along with several co-authors.  The article, titled, Schism or Communion? A Discussion of the Morality of Online Learning through a Christian/Catholic Lens, is a rebuttal of Catholic scholar Jonathan Malesic’s criticism of online learning as being contrary to Catholic teachings on learning and the relationship between teacher and student.

In the Journal’s 22-year history, this is the first time a Madonna faculty member has had an article published in it.

The open-access article can be found by clicking here.

Abstract – While massive open online courses (MOOCs) garnered plenty of attention at the beginning of the decade, initial findings about their value have been disappointing. In particular, only a narrow range of participants appear to be successful in completing and passing these unmonitored courses: white, educated, affluent males. One prominent Catholic scholar, Jonathan Malesic, went as far as saying that the very nature of MOOCs does not align with Catholic teachings of learning through social interaction, adapting to the needs of the learner, and teaching (i.e., successfully) the masses. Further, by extension, he applied these criticisms to online learning in general. This article examines these criticisms, describes how these problems are present in K-12 online learning, and gives examples of how these issues are mitigated. The article concludes with ideas for using the online learning medium to promote Catholic and Christian values.
