Bilgi çağının bir gereksinimi olarak çalışan veya herhangi bir sebepten dolayı geleneksel eğitim kurumlarından uzak olan bireylerin ihtiyaç duyduğu güncel iletişim teknolojilerinde meydana gelen gelişmeler her ne kadar eğitimcilere fırsatlar sunmakta olsada, bu teknolojilerin öğrenme ve öğretmen faaliyetlerinde nasıl kullanılması gerektiği, uygun pedagojik yaklaşımların neler olabilieceği cevaplanması gereken bir sorun olarak beklemektedir. Bu çalışma, verilen sebeplerden dolayı, özellikle uzaktan eğitim faaliyetlerinde pedagojik dinamiklerin neler olabileceğini yetişkin öğrencilerin tecrübeleri ile incelemek üzere yürütülmüştür. Bu bağlamda, öğrencilerin uzaktan eğitimde öğrenme üzerine genel görüşlerinin yanı sıra hangi unsurların önemli olduğu tartışılmıştır. Katılımcılara göre başarılı bir uzaktan eğitim faaliyeti için pedagojik bir planlamanın ve bu planın hayata geçirilmesi ile ilgili bir takım stratejilerin dikkate alınması gerekmektedir. Bunlardan en önemlileri, öğretim öncesi iyi bir pedagojik planlama (tasarımın) yapılması, öğretim faaliyetinde bulunan öğretmen ve öğrencilerin sistem içerisinde var olduklarını hissettirmeleri, ve öğrencilerin öğrenmeleri ile ilgili bir geri beslemeye dikkat edilmesi gereği vurgulanmıştır
The need for providing opportunities for those who seek for advancing his or her knowledge and skills on different subjects while they are away from campus has been a requirement of the era we live in. Thus, the diffusion of distance education concept among educators and use of related technologies in many campuses has been growing. Although different advanced technologies are available for preparing and delivering content online, the important question on how to use these technologies still remains unanswered. Literature on the subject recommends that having access to technology itself does not produce desired outcome, unless it is supported with appropriate pedagogical approaches. This study, therefore, was designed to investigate pedagogy of teaching and learning online from adult students’ perspectives. Specifically, to understand pedagogical factors that impact student understanding of the content online, how adult students in an online program assess pedagogical approaches represented by course instructors, weaknesses they have experienced and ideas what would be done in terms of pedagogical approach so that adult learners learn better in online environments. Participants stressed on the importance of pedagogical planning and implementation strategies. Among those issues, planning before teaching, social presence through interactions, and feedback mechanism are mostly indicated issues necessary for effective teaching and learning online.
