Abstract:

The presentation addresses postgraduate student support in an open distance learning context. Nodding’s four features of a caring curriculum was used as theoretical underpinning: modeling, practice, authentic dialogue and confirmation/affirmation. Integrating these four features into learning strengthens student interaction and engagement beyond levels that are normally experienced in this context.
