What is pedagogy? Pedagogy is the art or science of teaching; the instruction in teaching methods. Retrieved from http://www.sil.org/lingualinks/literacy/referencemsaryofliteracyterms/WhatIsPedagogy.htm
What is pedagogy? The term pedagogy refers to the art of teaching, with "ped" being the Greek root for "child." Retrieved from http://www.web-conferencing-zone.com/4086-pedagogy.htm
What is distance education pedagogy? Distance education pedagogy is the art or science of teaching at a distance; the instruction in teaching methods for distance delivery.
Active learning pedagogy Active learning methodology has become a preferred way to change the traditional teacher centered classroom into the newer student centered approach to learning. The objectives of active learning techniques are to foster a more conducive learning environment for the student so that the student has an active role in his or her learning process.

Do you agree? Many educators pride themselves on being pedagogically (as opposed to technologically) driven in their teaching and learning designs. (Anderson & Dron, 2011) Retrieved from http://www.irrodl.org/index.php/irrodl/article/view/890/1663
The Cognitive-Behaviourist Pedagogy of Distance Education (Anderson & Dron, 2011) Change in behaviour: 1.gain learners’ attention, 2. inform learner of objectives, 3. stimulate recall of previous information, 4. present stimulus material, 5. provide learner guidance, 6. elicit performance, 7. provide feedback, 8. assess performance, 9. enhance transfer opportunities. (Gagne, 1965)
Social-Constructivist Pedagogy of Distance Education (Anderson & Dron, 2011) Social-constructivist pedagogy acknowledges the social nature of knowledge and of its creation in the minds of individual learners. Teachers do not merely transmit knowledge to be passively consumed by learners; rather, each learner constructs means by which new knowledge is both created and integrated with existing knowledge. (Anderson & Dron, 2011)
Connectivist Pedagogy of Distance Education (Anderson & Dron, 2011) The third generation of distance-education pedagogy emerged recently and is known as connectivism. Canadians George Siemens (Siemens, 2005a, 2005b, 2007) and Stephen Downes (2007) have written defining connectivist papers, arguing that learning is the process of building networks of information, contacts, and resources that are applied to real problems. (Anderson & Dron, 2011)
Which do you subscribe to? Cognitive-Behaviourist Pedagogy (your goal is to change behaviours) Social-Constructivist Pedagogy (your goal is to provide opportunities for learners to construct their own knowledge) Connectivist Pedagogy – (your goal is to facilitate information networks)
Does your teaching reflect your pedagogy? Do you talk or lecture the majority of the time? Do you ask questions and facilitate discussions? Do you allow students to interrupt to ask questions at any time? How often do you have students working in groups? Do you allow or encourage peer review opportunities? How soon do you respond to emails or questions? How soon do you return marked assignments? Do your students mostly read information and then answer questions? Do your students mostly watch videos and then answer questions? Do you use any type of threaded discussion forums?
Are you thinking about curriculum alignment? One of the most fundamental things in the process of instructional design is the consideration of alignment of three elements: learning outcomes; learning activities; and assessments. Effective instruction requires that these three elements are aligned in all aspects of the course; modules, units, sections, and lessons. This is what is referred to as curriculum alignment. Curriculum alignment is very closely linked to constructive alignment. The 'constructive' aspect refers to the idea that students construct meaning through relevant learning activities (Biggs, 2003). In order to determine what content needs to be covered in a course, the learning outcomes or learning objectives need to be identified. After the outcomes are mapped out, relevant and appropriate learning activities are selected. These learning activities should then inform content selection.
