On Grainne's slide representing pedagogical approaches the word vicarious jumped out at me. I've been thinking about something like this as being appropriate to supporting online learning, and the development of a student's online identity. Just going to have to figure out what it means exactly and what it involves practically. Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what a "vicarious" pedagogical approach is exactly. I've never heard of it before. Thanks Helen

I'm having trouble to open the link on the page. Is it only me or are there other people with the same problem?

Hi Helen

I picked up the concept of vicarious learning from Terry Mayes. He described how he had students learning from each other. Students would watch videos created by other students explaining a concept. Will see if I can find a link to something about it.

Here is a paper on vicarious learning

Also this paper might be useful

Nice quote from Terry Mayes on Vicarious learning , he draws on Bandura's use of the phrase: i.e.

Bandura’s term vicarious learning - is that through technology we are now able to capture, store and retrieve the records and outputs of real learning episodes, and to make these available for new learners.

Dear Grainne,

I found the slideshare an interesting one. I think that some of the approaches can be mingled, i.e. when I think of a constructivist approach, I think as well of situated learning and collaborative learning, or e-assessment as formative, peer feedback, eportfolio, reflective.

I think that Bandura's self-efficacy is also acheved when people are in an online learning and get the satisfaction and gain the confidence to work on something new and are successful in the learning outcomes -

Your storyboard organizer gave me the idea to adopt it to my project. I'm going to use Glogster.

Thanks Ida and agree you can mix things up - the course features just helps you think about the different approaches you can adopt in the design. Thanks for the link and also Glogster not come across that before will take a look!

I find the presentation offers a helpfu distillation of things we need to consider. Having said that, perhaps the linear structure does not really match reality - it is more a more messy and dynamic interaction between those elements, with systems impacts between the elements. Additionally, design is not always so rational and logical - what about organisational politics and power playing a part? What do you think? Best regards, Jeff

I love the presentation. One question, when I download the PPT document, the audio narration did come along, is this the intention?

Totally agree it is not a linear process, it is very much iterative and messy but the framework does at least articulate the different elements. One can start anywhere in the cycle. So for example one teacher might start with Capture by identifying the resources they are going to use, another might start with the Learning Outcomes, and a third might begin by focusing on the nature of the learners.

Hi I think when you download the presentation the audio doesnt come too? Not sure tbh!

Good overview in the presentation. Thought of using videoclips for enhancement of English for engineering students. Aspects of the vicarious learner would be useful in that context I think.
