As the innovation arm at a leading University, our goal at the Center is to determine ways to leverage technology to enhance student learning and reach more students by providing blended learning experiences using a variety of well researched adult learning techniques and employing web-based tools. Using Adobe Connect as a virtual classroom tool, we have successfully introduced two interactive adult learning pedagogies, “discussion” and “coaching,” to our online students through the use of Adobe Connect. Two programs that we offer, “Discussion as a Way of Teaching,” and “The University Coaching Certification Program,” use an array of renowned teaching and learning strategies and blend multiple delivery methods. The goal of this paper is to describe how discussion and coaching can be successfully implemented synchronously online and detail the benefits and challenges associated with applying these pedagogies in a blended environment that incorporates high quality virtual classroom.
