In addition to being in Dr. Rice's 521 class, I am currently taking edtech 512 which involves creating an online course. This past week we were identifying learning activities that promote high levels of learner engagement. As part of our task for the week, we needed to evaluate whether the learning activities we chose were "student to student", "student to content" or "student to instructor". I find Dr. Kerry and Dr. Hsu's recently published work on learner engagement relevant to this assignment because in their final discussion they state that "Possibly the most significant conclusion that can be drawn from this analysis is the importance of activities that encourage learners to interact with the course content, with their peers, and with the instructor." It's exciting when current research aligns with what I'm learning! I love this edtech program!
Excellent Cambria! Good to hear.
