Recent Internet developments and advances in networking have encouraged students' collaboration with other students and instructors, increased students' access to experts, and provided an array of learning resources. However, the potential of technology to transform the teaching and learning environment is still far from being realized in institutions of higher education. The e-learning program within the Masters Degree (MSc) Program in Education and Training Management in the School of Education Studies at Dublin City University (DCU) is attempting to realize that potential by integrating technology with active learning activities in an online learning community. Using examples drawn from a cohort of students working their way through the Emerging Pedagogies module, the author demonstrates how information and communication technologies, and online discussions in particular, can be used to help students recognize and examine the values that underlie their teaching and learning, thereby enhancing their personal knowledge base for professional practice.
