Best Practices in Online Teaching for Student Engagement | Teaching and Learning Initiative

Best Practices in Online Teaching for Student Engagement | Teaching and Learning Initiative | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Overview
Many theorists predict that online education will gradually surpass traditional classrooms in the role of educating students in higher education....


The growing trend toward online education is self-evident through the increasing popularity of online universities such as University of Phoenix, Kaplan University, Strayer University and many others. Economic trends have forced more and more disenfranchised individuals out of the workforce and into a situation of needing to achieve a higher education to improve their chances for employability; many of the students in these online colleges and universities are students over 25, with families, and some with full- or part-time jobs.

Questions of Culture in Distance Learning: A Research Review | Uzuner | The International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning

Questions of Culture in Distance Learning: A Research Review | Uzuner | The International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Sedef Uzuner
State University of New York at Albany, USA


Abstract


This paper reviews past research that focused on questions of culture in distance learning. Of specific interest are the studies that examined the influence of culture on students’ learning and engagement in asynchronous learning networks (ALNs). The purpose of this review is three-fold: to present the state of knowledge concerning the questions of culture in distance learning, to highlight important methodological issues that past research has left unresolved, and to provide practical insights into teaching culturally and linguistically diverse online communities of learners. For these purposes, 27 studies are examined and the findings are reported under the following two categories: What do studies focusing on questions of culture in distance learning tell us? What implications do they suggest for practice and future research? Also, the paper provides methodological insights for researchers who wish to investigate the cultural dimensions of distance learning in future studies.
