Beyond Synchronous and Asynchronous: Elastic Proximity
When we talk about teaching synchronously or asynchronously, we are describing what teachers are doing, not what students are learning or what skills they are developing. Students don’t learn synchronously or asynchronously. Students learn and grow…and they learn and grow in varied proximity to teachers and to each other. In this webinar, Ross Peters will introduce “elastic proximity,” an approach to teaching in which the teacher makes decisions about delivery, student guidance, and student skill development based on the ideal proximity of the teacher to students, of the students to other students, and of the individual student to the teacher.
