The Erosion of Face-to-Face Pedagogy

The Erosion of Face-to-Face Pedagogy

A Jeremiad

(p.449) Chapter Twenty-Three The Erosion of Face-to-Face Pedagogy
The Drama of Possibility

John J. McDermott

Fordham University Press

This chapter presents an essay on the escalating influence of computer technology in the affairs of pedagogy and the possible decline in face-to-face encounters in the pedagogical environment. It states that the development of online education has caused the quality of pedagogical interaction to deteriorate. This development has undermined the implacable power of face-to-face experience and highlighted the diluting character of distance as illustrated by voice mails. It suggests that the wider the physical gap, the more indirect the experience and the lesser the quality of educational experience.

Keywords:   computer technology, face-to-face pedagogy, online education, voice mails, educational experience, essay
