Digital pedagogy: Finding the balance in an online learning and teaching environment
A recent small-scale qualitative case study conducted at the Queensland University of Technology (Irvine, 2004) investigated the issues faced by academics using online teaching environments in a tertiary setting. It found that academics were positive about their experiences in online teaching and the development of new pedagogical practice. This paper will present the findings of the study reinterpreted in terms of an activity system (after Engestrom, 1987) and in so doing, reveal the interactions and interdependence within this case, particularly the pivotal balance of human and technical support in the successful shift from traditional to online practice.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
