The Manifesto for Teaching Online has been provoking thinking among educators since 2011. To mark the launch the book of the manifesto, published by MIT Press, we brought together the author team during September and October 2020 to offer snapshots of the thinking behind the manifesto, and open it up for discussion. Recordings of all three events are now available.
Whose interests do automation, algorithms and datafication serve? Manifesto authors Dr Jen Ross, Dr Jeremy Knox and Dr Pete Evans are joined by Professor Neil Selwyn from Monash University.
Challenging the idea that online teaching is ‘second best’, and arguing that the distancing in ‘distance learning’ is more complex than we might think, Manifesto authors Professor Sian Bayne, Dr Phil Sheail and Dr Rory Ewins are joined by Professor Rebecca Eynon from Oxford University.
Arguing that authorship isn’t what it used to be - how we assess students and understand plagiarism needs to shift. Manifesto authors Dr James Lamb, Dr Hamish Macleod and Dr Christine Sinclair are joined by Dr Amy Collier from Middlebury College.
