Learning Community Call for Participation - Handbook of Research on Strategic Management of Interact
Lydia Kyei-Blankson is a co-editor for the Handbook of Research on Strategic Management of Interaction, Presence, and Participation in Online Courses. She would like to invite The Learner knowledge community to submit a proposal to the Call for Chapters for publication in the Handbook of Research on Strategic Management of Interaction, Presence, and Participation in Online Courses.
Potential contributors are invited to submit a 1,000-2,000 word chapter proposal outlining their proposed work/research as it relates to levels of interaction, presence, and participation in online courses and factors that encourage effective teaching and learning in online environments. Proposals must be submitted on or before September 15, 2014. For more information on the Call for Chapters, please click here to download the pdf.
Lydia Kyei-Blankson is also a member of The Learner knowledge community. She is an Associate Professor at Illinois State University where she teaches graduate courses in quantitative and qualitative research methods. In 2011 at the Eighteenth International Conference on Learning, Lydia presented a virtual presentation entitled, “Delivering Quality Learning Experiences in Online Courses.” The presentation included a study that examined student performance and perceptions of the quality of instruction in an online research methods course delivered using both asynchronous and synchronous tools. The purpose of the study was to help identify the unique teaching strategies that are effective in asynchronous and synchronous formats and to provide implications for improving pedagogical approaches used in the online course in general. Read more about Lydia’s presentation in the 2011 Final Conference Program.
