ESC413 Online Pedagogies (8)

This subject is designed to introduce students to a range of online tools and learning theories. Students will become acquainted with online technology integration models, and engage with pedagogical approaches that assist in the purposeful and ethical integration of technologies to support teaching and learning online. These pedagogies, frameworks, and models will be utilised to design accessible online learning and teaching experiences/activities, and to evaluate their effectiveness. The context for these will be the curriculum of New South Wales, and the Australian Curriculum and Reporting Authority and their outcomes and objectives, or the equivalent for interstate and international students.
