Coping with Cultural Challenges in an Online Learning Framework
I recently (not quite, see the note below) presented a paper in the AsiaCALL Conference 2012, Open University, Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam.
This is the slide I presented in the conference. Basically, I tried to provoke awareness of Asian Educators to be more aware of some cultural challenges (i.e. passive, teacher-oriented, didactic; c.f. Confucian, Javanese, Balinese Cultural views). I propose an active type of learning which ‘attack’ this cultural challenge. At the end of the slide, as you can see, I emphasize some notes on the talk.
This is a very good place to share ideas I am mostly working on at the moment. As a bonus, I became one of the board members for the 2012 – 2013 period. Looking forward to learning, then. Thank you for reading. I am happy for any constructive feedback :).
Note: I also wrote this earlier in my website but decided to put another backup here for future purpose.
I am happy to share this. Please feel free to reblog or share the link, all with my accreditation. Thank you.
