Changing Roles, Changing Technologies: The Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation of a Media Technology and Diversity On-Line Course.
Hegngi, Yolanda Nokuri
This study focused on providing insight into online teaching and learning by analyzing the electronic discourse and examining its context--the design, development, and implementation. The inquiry used a case study methodology on a sample of 15 participants to discover theoretical positions. The framework was based on one main question with two ancillary probes which are discussed in detail: "How is the introduction of the World Wide Web technology changing pedagogical practices?"; "How does the technology help reshape roles for teachers and learners?"; and "How does the technology encourage new and different types of interactions in the classroom?" The setting for the study was an undergraduate, senior-level course and graduate, "Media, Technology, and Diversity," designed to examine the influence of stereotypes and the values and beliefs of the designers on media products. A summary of research findings and practical implications is provided. The course production and implementation timeline and the syllabus are appended. (AEF)
