Abstract

Compared with the traditional “Sage-on-the-Stage” style, the pedagogical approach of being a “Guide on the Side” allows learners to take a higher level of responsibility in learning and construct new knowledge more actively through interaction and collaboration, rather than passively “receiving” information from an expert. However, inappropriately implementing the “Guide-onthe- Side” approach in online environments may degenerate the quality of academic work and reduce learner satisfaction, especially if the courses are designed in a way that supports limited interaction and feedback. This paper discusses how to balance between the two approaches while trying to maintain high levels of student-centeredness and quality learning when teaching online.
