7 The National Centre for E-Learning and Distance Learning Saudi Arabia classroom learning is often… uninteresting one size fits all limited in scope and intention passive & expository content-oriented a lack of alignment between objectives, learning and assessment

8 The National Centre for E-Learning and Distance Learning Saudi Arabia always ideas for better learning “Books will soon be obsolete in the schools. Scholars will soon be instructed through the eye. It is possible to teach every branch of human knowledge with the motion picture. Our school system will be completely changed in ten years”

9 The National Centre for E-Learning and Distance Learning Saudi Arabia learning theories that guide teaching behaviorism –shaping performance cognitivism –integrating schema constructivism –building mental models social-constructivism –building better understanding

10 The National Centre for E-Learning and Distance Learning Saudi Arabia effective teaching learner engagement –consideration of learners’ prior knowledge and their desires and building on their expectations. acknowledgement of the learning context –a consideration of the implementation of the learning design and its position within the broader program of study for the learner. learner challenge –seeking active participation of learners, encouraging learners to be self-critical and supportive of learners’ ampliative skills. provision of practice –encouraging learners to articulate and demonstrate to themselves and their peers what they are learning (Boud and Prosser 2002).
