Presentation title
Developing a Sustainable Community of Inquiry: Reflections and Lessons Learned
Presentation abstract
This paper reports on a collaborative initiative between a US language educator and a Malaysian language educator on blended learning using Garrison’s (2017) Community of Inquiry (CoI) framework. It took place in a postgraduate course at a university in Malaysia which, for many semesters, had been conducted face-to-face with online resources provided in the form of readings and online submission. In an attempt to increase the amount of learning and engagement among students outside of class time, blended learning based on the CoI was introduced in the course. Unlike many articles which report on the ‘success stories’ of certain initiatives, this paper is a reflection of why the CoI practice did not continue in the following semesters, despite the benefits evidenced based on an analysis of the students’ interaction; it also considers the lessons learned. This paper first describes the project, which lasted for one semester. It then reviews some findings based on the three key elements of teaching presence, social presence and cognitive presence. Finally, this paper discusses some lessons learned for a CoI to be sustainable in a course, and argues that learning from ‘failure’ can be as valuable as learning from the past experience of success.
