I am pleased to report that my conference proposal They Are Asking for More: Engaging Graduate Students in a Virtual Seminar has been accepted. I will present at the AECT Convention in Jacksonville, Florida in November.
This year’s convention theme is Celebrate 3.0: Design.Learn.Community. I am going to present the preliminary findings of my doctoral research conducted at the graduate level in five North American universities. Data were collected through post facto observations of synchronous online graduate seminars, interviews with faculty members, students and instructional designers, as well as mid-term and after-the-term online student questionnaires.
I will help participants collectively determine which successful practices they would consider adopting in their daily practice to foster a community of inquiry where interaction plays a key role toward higher-order learning. I believe this session will be of special interest to faculty members and instructional designers.
