CIDER session, Wednesday, September 8, 2010, 11am-12pm MT

You are invited to the opening presentation of the fall series of free online CIDER sessions. This session features a presentation and discussion with Dr. Kelly Edmonds.

Title: Learning Issues for Online Graduate Students

Results are shared from a recent doctoral study that explored the leadership implications for delivering online learning in a mainstream Canadian higher education institution by examining the characteristics, attributes, motivations, and perceptions of 163 graduate students.

The data revealed online program issues, the need for faculty presence and development for online environments, and supportive online student services. As well, the data showed leaders must consider working effectively with faculty and ensuring students had quality online experiences. Other leadership considerations were effectively planning, implementing, and delivering online learning as well as marketing online programs. In this presentation three particular learning issues are shared that were described by participants. These are contentious online learning activities and the offer of blended learning opportunities. As well, participants had difficulties defining specific pedagogical strategies that would aid them in learning online.
