Being at Home in Transnational Spaces: Conceptualizing the Lifeworld of Chinese Migrants Abroad

In a way, both approaches fall into the trap of methodological nationalism and thus fail

Designing Science Simulations in Accordance with Research-Based Guidelines: A Case Study Approach

Educational researchers have shown experimentally that student learning through animations and videos can be made more effective through the consideration of a number of cognitive based design principles. The applicability of these evidence based guidelines in the design of complex science simulations for a popular online course regarding life on other planets is documented in

Course Facilitation Tools – Engaging 21st Century Adult Learners

As we develop online courses for our learners, we nurture them with well-conceived, well-designed, well-presented courses and programs. Course facilitation expectations and approaches are designed to engage 21st century learners in asynchronous activities with their peers and teacher. In this presentation, Tony will share research-based facilitation approaches which are designed to engage 21st century learners
