1 Supporting Productive Engagement in Online Communities Lindsay, Dani and Laura

2 Aims To consider which online communities students use and how they engage with these communities. To explore how we can support students to engage productively in relevant online communities. To consider how we might develop our own subject knowledge, as tutors, in the area of online communities.

3 Learning Outcomes Participants will understand the importance of supporting productive engagement in online communities. Participants will be aware of a variety of ways of supporting student engagement in online communities. Participants will have identified which areas of their own subject knowledge need to be developed in order to support student’s engagement in online communities.

4 Section 1 What should we be aiming for? What are we doing at the moment? What should we reflect on ?

5 What is productive engagement ? Developed from The Strategy for Enhancing the Student Experience - Digital and information literacy. Raftery :2010

8 When it comes to digital literacy how productively engaged in online communities are we? We sent out a survey monkey link to all students on this course. Personal use of online communities How do we engage with students through online medium What online communities do students use… we think The response was limited - 9

25 Things to consider... Because of the huge part students play in online communities, outcomes may be those that the students desire rather than what the tutor originally intended. (Salmon, 2004) ‘Curriculum on the fly’ (Doneman, 1997)
