Last session of the day

Applying e-pedagogy in the Blended learning environment
Well this one was at least interesting - and revived me at the end of the day. Linda Murray and Dr Phil Alberts from Brunel University questioned the relationship between pedagogy for face to face learning and online learning, and could the same pedagogy be applied to both? They worked through the learning theories asking where would we get e-pedagogy from? Social constructivism, constructivism, metacognition, cognitivism, or neo behaviourism.
and could an e-pedagogy be applied more appropriately to one of them - they concluded that there are more similarities than differences. Not exactly brain surgery and no "wow" factors.
