Hi everyone, Great to see this site, I am currently working on my PhD looking at how personalised learning can be carried out using the CoI as a framework within a blended study mode. Hoping that the work may help other educators to understand how to develop a personalised learning strategy. Currently looking at further developing my literature review and methodology so any further thoughts would be ...

Minghui, Thanks for your question. While this deserves a more extended response, let be briefly say that both Lipman's work and the CoI framework is grounded generally in Dewey's work, although Dewey did not used this term explicitly. We borrowed the term community of inquiry from Lipman (2003) as this reflected my previous work related to collaboration and the inquiry process. Lipman focused on an educational ...

Your teachers are welcome to register in DCOI up to the final day of the MOOC, April 15, 2023. After that date, however, registration will be closed. The MOOC will have a weekly schedule of topics, but the materials and discussions from earlier weeks remain open, and late arrivals can catch up. Anyone who registers by April 15 will also have read-only access to the materials after that date - so if you can get your ...

Yes - because learning is so complex and so intangible, we'll likely never be able to approach it directly, so it might be useful to see each theory as trying to approach it from a different perspective, with its own beliefs, values, and goals. The CoI framework, for example, could be interpreted as trying to integrate three different perspectives on the central idea of an "educational experience", and how these ...

Prof, The proliferation of fake news and the continued attempt to silence/demobilize divergent thinking is almost becoming a virus whose effects will hit the world like AIDS. Voices like these need to be raised vouching for intellectual humility that accepts the views of others first even though you do not disagree with them. Collaborative discourse can only thrive in an atmosphere of openness, accommodation and ...

Welcome, James! You're exploring some very interesting territory here. The intersection between the Community of Inquiry and learning analytics is likely to become an important research area over the next few years - as is the area of affective, emotional, or "multimodal" learning analytics itself, as you describe ...

Greetings everyone. COL is basically in the learning domain, however, is it possible to assess or measure entry level skills in social presence, particularly affective behaviors to determine how well the student will do initially in a course. I understand that affective behaviors are effective until the COL becomes ...

Dear professor, recently i have read the community of inquiry that created by Lipman decades years ago. So, I am wondering the relationship between your community framework and Lipman's. Are there some relationship between learning community(Dewey) , community of inquiry(Lipman) and community of inquiry (yours)? ...

Welcome to the CoI community, Rick! Yes, shared metacognition (and the closely related [socially] shared regulation of learning, see eg. Sanna Jarvela and colleagues) is a key piece of the CoI picture and I'm sure will be an important research area over the next few years. As it stands, it can be a challenging ...

Good afternoon from Phoenix, AZ. I am at the beginning stages of a doctoral program and have been interested in the CoI Framework. I have recently read about the construct of shared metacognition and saw that there seems to be a large gap in this area. Can someone tell me how I can view a copy of the Shared ...
