#EDENChat: Silent learners in online courses

Some learners are more active than others. Some enjoy group work but others avoid it if at all possible. Some prefer to listen, observe, reflect and learn without needing to actively participate.

Active participation is expected and rewarded today but do active participants learn more than silent learners? Should we try to encourage everyone to be active or can we accept diversity and find ways of including the silent learners in the course?

Join us in a tweetchat on this theme at 20.00 CET on Wednesday 8 March at 20:00 CET. Don’t forget the hashtag #EDENChat.

Watch how to take part in a tweetchat.
