Hi everyone, I really like the discussion that's going on in the general thread about ethics and coordination of research actions in order to don't disturb our process of connecting and learning. so I would like to suggest some specific actions and then we can coordinate them with the research team of ccourses and the other interested in the CCRW...
@JeffreyKeefer I bring the questioner you posted in the general thread Critical-Incident-Questionnaire-v7.doc (34 KB). I suggest we can adapt this questioner for teachers to reflect on a week of ccourses activities.
I was looking at the reference where this questioner was based (I didn't have it in my scope) and I found interesting for our purposes the 4 lenses that Brookfield (1995) suggest to Becoming a Critically Reflective Teacher. I was thinking in take this 4 lenses and as the teachers to look at each of them each of the remaining weeks of the course. Here the lenses and what I have thought could be the reflective questions to post during the week
(1) the autobiographical,
How is the experience that you are living in CCourses relates to your teaching experience or any other experience in your life?
(2) the students' eyes,
How did you feel in the role of students during your journay in CCourses?
(3) our colleagues' experiences
Find another teacher our of CCourses and share your experience with him/her. What now inputs this conversation gives you? How did you feel sharing it with someone who was not part of your journey?
(4) the last lens is "theoretical literature".
Pick any book or paper or reference you find interesting and share your thought about how it relates to your experience in CCourses.
it could also be that for the last week we ask a more retrospective open question like, " looking back to the beginning of the CCourses experience, what have you learn that would like to incorporate in your teaching practice?"
I would suggest to coordinate with the organization, maybe we could implement something like "the #weekly reflection" using each of these topics in each week that comes..
What do you think about this idea?
I think this way we contribute as well to the reflective process that is intended in this experience and we get information that will help us to understand the teachers experience and how this transform their practice...
I think on "how do we know who are our participants?".. I would suggest to make an open call to know who would be interested in participate helping us to understand this process, so that it will be open to everyone the process and the purpose (although i think the week reflection would be interesting for everyone)..
looking forward for your feedback!!
