In this workshop we’ll explore the Visitors and Residents (V&R) concept and use the V&R mapping exercise to reflect on our online identities and practices, as well as the online practices of our students. The Visitors and Residents approach has been described by Dave White (2014) as “a pragmatic way of understanding online learning practices which often go undiscussed in education”. The V&R mapping exercise has proved to be an excellent starting point for reflecting on overall approaches to teaching, for informing ways to work with students online, and for considering the relationship between the formal institution and online culture.
This workshop will be offered locally and online simultaneously.
Facilitators: Donna Lanclos & David White
