Transcript

  • 1. New Directions for SLN Research: 2009-2012
    Peter Shea
    Senior Researcher for the SUNY Learning Network
    Educational Theory and Practice & CCI
    University at Albany, SUNY
  • 2. Outline
    Review of past research
    Current project
    Plans for future
    Discussion
  • 3. Past work
    Eleven years of survey and other research
    17 peer reviewed journal publications, 6 book chapters
    Focus group research w Roxanne Hiltz
    More recent research using Quantitative Content Analysis (QCA)
    Most recent are…
  • 4. Most recent work
    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.
    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.
    Shea, P. & Bidjerano, T. (2009). Community of inquiry as a theoretical framework to foster "epistemic engagement" and "cognitive presence" in online education. Computers and Education, 52 (3), 543 – 553.
    Shea, P. & Bidjerano, T. (2009). Cognitive presence: A cluster analysis. Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 21(3), 199-217.
  • 5. Understanding different learning outcomes in hybrid and online environments
    Based on Means et. al. meta-analysis documenting best outcomes in hybrid
    Theoretically – why?
    Is it better Teaching Presence e.g.
    Seems to be the case…
    Focus on what matters wrt TP
  • 6. A reexamination of the community of inquiry framework: Social network and quantitative content analysis
    Ongoing project looking at 2 fully online courses
    Document all forms of presence
    High v. Low Instructor TP
    What are the impacts of this?
    Not what you might think…
    Need to look very hard to see what is happening in online courses
  • 7. Community of inquiry as a theoretical framework to foster "epistemic engagement" and "cognitive presence" in online education
    Reviews different conceptions of OLL
    Presentational (multimedia), performance tutoring, epistemic engagement
    Community of Inquiry as model for epistemic engagement
    Understanding connections between TP, SP, and CP
    Need to focus on systemic nature of OLL
  • 8. Cognitive presence: A cluster analysis
    A multivariate measure of significant learning
    How does it arise – when does it not?
    Contribution of TP and SP to CP
    Equilibrium model – need to have at least one, preferably both – but its clear that when one or the other is low, CP is lower…
  • 9. In Pipeline
    CoI meets Self Efficacy…analyzing fall 09 data now
    Ongoing CoI QCA project – document all forms of presence in two entire online courses
    3 AERA 2010 accepted proposals to become papers
    Design Experiment on Blended and Online Learning at Community College Level (HVCC)
    Open Educational Resource Study (SCCC)
    Both of these were submitted for CIT
    HPLO Framework
  • 10. Vision
    Create a center for the study of technology mediated teaching and learning for SUNY System
    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
    Produce various publications for journals and conferences as well as dissertations and white papers on best practices
    Attract external funding.
  • 11.
  • 12. Research Partnerships to Improve Practice
    Campuses
    UAlbany
    SUNY System
  • 13. Campuses
    People: Faculty/Mids/Directors
    Context: Programs/Courses
    “Issues” – Practices
    “Subjects”
    Goals of continuous improvement
  • 14. SUNY Learning Network (System)
    Support
    Organization

    Venues - SOL Summit, CIT, MID Meetings etc
  • 15. University at Albany
    Doctoral Program – Courses, Students
    Ideas/Theories/Concepts

    Tools for Research/Inquiry
    Community for Reflection (ACRIDAT, CCI for a)
    Other forums (Sloan-C Conference)
