Colleges in Corona Mortis: The offensive limitations of the digital teaching

Since mid-March, the German students have Online teaching. Teachers are always present in a better to, to use an elegant balance between the various platforms, switches, and interactive Tools to. However, something Essential, namely, the presence is missing. Now the power of the dialogue in shows of learning, and here the path leads directly from the digital discourses of Habermas and learning theorists such as Ruf and Gallin to Socrates. His teaching in the "dialogues" is subject-oriented and content– oriented, in that it has quite a bit of the often-maligned service.

But teaching is not always of service, service to the people? The daily, weekly struggle, the understand To the value and usefulness of the complex-mediated content – and, if we talk of colleges, also apply? Dialogic Learning is a permanent exchange, is a process. And for this process it needs the newer learning theory studies the whole person show, in short: the presence. The is demanding – physically and mentally.

The heroes of the Online teaching at universities and, occasionally, discreetly promoted by a supposedly philanthropic companies such as Google et al., claiming to be the spear tip of a movement.

Hattie's famous "Know thy impact" (for example: "Know thy impact") is the online hard to imagine. The digital teaching, to which we are urged to be at the expense of subtlety. The subtle differences separate average learning units of a fascinating teaching. The opportunity to react spontaneously, when one looks into a series of clueless or indifferent faces.
