Chapter 7: Blended for Student Engagement and Retention

"Facetiously described as the “third generation” of distance learning, blended learning is now the new kid on the block in the deployment of technology to support teaching and learning. Its versatility as a pedagogical strategy for creating learner-centered instruction lies in the capacity to exploit the potentials of both the traditional face-to-face instruction and online learning modality in order to provide students with multiple pathways of learning. Yet, developing a blended course ..."

Study finds MOOC engagement varies from offline courses | University Business Magazine

"The paper is based on quantitative investigations of more than 300,000 students’ behavior in several large Stanford University courses offered on Coursera, one of the major MOOC platforms. It identifies five distinct types of engagement with MOOCs:

>Viewers, who primarily watch lectures but don’t hand in many assignments

> Solvers, who hand in assignments for a grade but view few if any lectures

>All-rounders, who watch most lectures and hand in most assignments, behaving more like a student in a traditional course

> Collectors, who primarily download lectures and may or may not be watching them immediately or in the future

> Bystanders, who register for a course but whose total activity is below a very low threshold"

Examining Knowledge Beliefs to Motivate Student Learning

“I just cram for the exam and then forget everything.”

“If I can just get this last paper done I am in the clear.”

Comments like these make us cringe, but we all know the external factors that motivate students: grades, grades, grades. I spend a great amount of time providing students with concrete, detailed feedback on papers only to hear someone say, “Oh, I didn’t look at the feedback, just the grade.” From a faculty perspective, the grade is the least important. The joy of student engagement and learning drives our work. We ended up in higher education for a reason—most of us see great value in the learning process.
