Digital meetings guided by the Community of Inquiry Framework
Enoksson, Fredrik

Book titleThe Design of Digital Learning Environments: Online and Blended Applications of the Community of Inquiry
Chapter 13, Pages 256–273
EditorsStenbom, Stefan · Cleveland-Innes, Martha F. · Stenbom, Stefan · Garrison, D. Randy

Digital meetings enable opportunity to conduct synchronous engagement in blended and online courses. Such meetings also provide favorable conditions for interaction and collaboration between students and teachers. Unfortunately, digital meetings often tend to be used for one-way communication, like traditional lectures. This chapter outlines the general advantages and limitations of digital meetings as an overview of the differences between synchronous digital and in-person meetings. Principles and guidelines addressing these limitations are presented based on the goal of creating and sustaining a community of inquiry during digital meetings. A study of how teachers perceive and plan for digital meetings in higher education is also presented and discussed from the perspective of Social and Teaching Presence. The chapter also includes a digital meeting template for practitioners to use when preparing and conducting digital meetings.
