Episode PA007: The REEAL Model

by Jim and Beth Harger | The Professional Adjunct Podcast

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.
