On this episode, we continue our discussion on conducting effective online discussions by focusing on the third step, providing feedback. Specifically, we discuss the R.E.E.A.L. model as developed by Laurie Bedford. I asked my partner, Elizabeth, to help explain this model and the application of it in our online discussions.
The article by Laurie Bedford is “The REEAL Model: A Framework for Faculty Training in Online Discussion Facilitation,” in the International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, v26 n3 p463-472 2014.
