Myths in your Moodle

Instructional design

Many concepts applied in blended and online education are often adopted based on commonly held beliefs and unproven theories, even at institutional level. Ideas like digital natives, problem-based learning, learning styles, brain use and MOOCs; which of these ed-tech related ideas are supported by evidence based research? In this presentation I will challenge some widely adopted practices. Should we follow these ideas as we utilise educational technologies? If not, what should we, as Moodle users, do instead?
