    Title: What’s in a name?he experience of the other in online classrooms
    Creator: Adams, Catherine A.
    Description: Educational research has explored the potentials and problems inherent in student anonymity and pseudonymity in virtual learning environments. But few studies have attended to onymity, that is, the use of ones own and others given names in online courses. In part, this lack of attention is due to the taken-for-granted nature of using our names in everyday, “face-to-face” classrooms as well as in online learning situations. This research explores the experiential significance of student names in online classrooms. Specifically, the paper reports on one relational thematic that surfaced in a phenomenological study investigating experiences of teaching and learning online.

  2. PowerPoint’s pedagogy [Download]

    Title: PowerPoint’s pedagogy
    Creator: Adams, Catherine A.
    Description: Teacher-student discourse is increasingly mediated through, by and with digital technologies. In-class discussions have found new, textually-rich venues online; chalk and whiteboard lectures are rapidly giving way to PowerPoint presentations. Yet, what does this mean experientially for students? This article investigates college students' experiences of PowerPoint in the classroom. The research asks: What are the tacit and pedagogical dimensions of the PowerPoint presentation for students? The method of inquiry is informed by a hermeneutic phenomenological approach and by the heuristic notions of pedagogical tact and thoughtfulness.

    Title: Teachers building dwelling thinking with slideware
    Creator: Adams, Catherine A.
    Description: Teacher-student discourse is increasingly mediated through, by and with information and communication technologies: in-class discussions have found new, textually-rich venues online; chalk and whiteboard lectures are rapidly giving way to PowerPoint presentations. Yet, what does this mean experientially for teachers? This paper reports on a phenomenological study investigating teachers' lived experiences of PowerPoint in post-secondary classrooms. As teachers become more informed about the affordances of information and communication technology like PowerPoint and consequently take up and use these tools in their classrooms, their teaching practices, relations with students, and ways of interpreting the world are simultaneously in-formed - conformed, deformed and reformed - by the given technology-in-use. The paper is framed in light of Martin Heidegger's \"Building Dwelling Thinking\" (1951) and \"The Thing\" (1949). In these writings, Heidegger shows how a thing opens a new world to us, revealing novel structures of experience and meaning, and inviting us to a different style of being, thinking and doing.

  4. “Will I ever connect with the students?” Online teaching and the pedagogy of care [Download]

    Title: “Will I ever connect with the students?” Online teaching and the pedagogy of care
    Creator: Rose, Ellen
    Description: Since Noddings (1984/2003) first made a case for acknowledging care as a core element and value in pedagogical relationships, research on care in classrooms has flourished. While research confirms the importance of a supportive environment for the success of the online student, we know little about how online instructors’ experience care—for their students and for themselves. This paper offers a phenomenological exploration of care as it is experienced in online postsecondary instructors’ interactions and relations with their students.
