Reclaiming the Oracle: Getting back to basics in journalism education
The contributions to this book reflect on more than four years of interactive online learning provided at the Konrad Adenauer Center for Journalism (CFJ) at the Ateneo de Manila University. First presented at a workshop at the Ateneo in December 2004 by CFJ faculty members from the Philippines, U.K. U.S.A., Australia, and India, the chapters draw on the faculty’s rich teaching experience and identify best practices
Divided into five parts, the book tackles different aspects of online journalism education. First there are the forewords. Because online learning is a qualitatively different mode of learning, replete with its pedagogical limitations as well as possibilities, PART II ‘Breaching the Limits’ engages with issues such as how to establish and manage effective collaborative learning relationships. PART III ‘Managing Participation’ deals with the management of active and meaningful student participation through the use of asynchronous and synchronous modes of teaching.
