  2. 2. Outline <br />Review of past research<br />Current project<br />Plans for future<br />Discussion<br />
  3. 3. Past work <br />Eleven years of survey and other research<br />17 peer reviewed journal publications, 6 book chapters<br />Focus group research w Roxanne Hiltz<br />More recent research using Quantitative Content Analysis (QCA)<br />Most recent are…<br />
  4. 4. Most recent work<br />Shea, P. & Bidjerano, T. (in review). Understanding different learning outcomes in hybrid and online environments: An empirical investigation of the Community of Inquiry Framework. Journal of Interactive Learning Environments.<br />Shea, P., Hayes, S., Vickers, J., Uzuner, S., Gozza-Cohen, M, Mehta, R. & Valtcheva, A. (in press). A reexamination of the community of inquiry framework: Social network and quantitative content analysis. The Internet and Higher Education, doi:10.1016/j.iheduc.2009.11.002.<br />Shea, P. & Bidjerano, T. (2009). Community of inquiry as a theoretical framework to foster &quot;epistemic engagement&quot; and &quot;cognitive presence&quot; in online education. Computers and Education, 52 (3), 543 – 553.<br />Shea, P. & Bidjerano, T. (2009). Cognitive presence: A cluster analysis. Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 21(3), 199-217. <br />
  5. 5. Understanding different learning outcomes in hybrid and online environments<br />Based on Means et. al. meta-analysis documenting best outcomes in hybrid <br />Theoretically – why?<br />Is it better Teaching Presence e.g.<br />Seems to be the case…<br />Focus on what matters wrt TP<br />
  6. 6. A reexamination of the community of inquiry framework: Social network and quantitative content analysis<br />Ongoing project looking at 2 fully online courses<br />Document all forms of presence<br />High v. Low Instructor TP<br />What are the impacts of this?<br />Not what you might think…<br />Need to look very hard to see what is happening in online courses<br />
  7. 7. Community of inquiry as a theoretical framework to foster &quot;epistemic engagement&quot; and &quot;cognitive presence&quot; in online education<br />Reviews different conceptions of OLL<br />Presentational (multimedia), performance tutoring, epistemic engagement<br />Community of Inquiry as model for epistemic engagement<br />Understanding connections between TP, SP, and CP<br />Need to focus on systemic nature of OLL <br />
  8. 8. Cognitive presence: A cluster analysis<br />A multivariate measure of significant learning<br />How does it arise – when does it not?<br />Contribution of TP and SP to CP<br />Equilibrium model – need to have at least one, preferably both – but its clear that when one or the other is low, CP is lower…<br />
  9. 9. In Pipeline <br />CoI meets Self Efficacy…analyzing fall 09 data now<br />Ongoing CoI QCA project – document all forms of presence in two entire online courses<br />3 AERA 2010 accepted proposals to become papers<br />Design Experiment on Blended and Online Learning at Community College Level (HVCC)<br />Open Educational Resource Study (SCCC)<br />Both of these were submitted for CIT<br />HPLO Framework<br />
  10. 10. Vision <br />Create a center for the study of technology mediated teaching and learning for SUNY System<br />Stage 1: Bring together practitioners (campus MIDs, faculty etc) and researchers (University faculty and doctoral students) to design and execute projects to improve research and practice<br />Produce various publications for journals and conferences as well as dissertations and white papers on best practices<br />Attract external funding. <br />

  13. 13. Campuses <br />People: Faculty/Mids/Directors<br />Context: Programs/Courses<br />“Issues” – Practices<br />“Subjects”<br />Goals of continuous improvement<br />
