Connecting teacher education students in instructional design
Abstract: WebEx has made it’s way from the Hollywood screen to the Teacher education classroom. It is transforming how we communicate and teach our distance education and traditional Teacher education audiences. From Transformers II to my Education course, WebEx is filling in the communication void some online/distance education students feel when taking online courses. This presentation will focus on the features WebEx tool and how it provides a new way of connecting with university instructors, students, administrators and general audiences. I will share how I have used this innovative communication tool with my teacher education students in both face-to-face and distance/online courses. I will also share comments from students about the use of this tool and discuss with the audience other uses of this tool in preparing teacher educators.
